Neighbors in Thomson react to fatal wreck

THOMSON, GA (WFXG) -

Thomson resident Liz Thomas said she always slows down at Moose Club Road and Augusta Road, where an accident Sunday took four lives and left one person critically injured.

“I don't know how the driving went as far as the accident, but that is what I do as a precaution.”

Georgia State Patrol said the wreck happened around 3 p.m., when the driver of a Lexus, 33-year-old Sedrick Lemont Wright, crossed the center line and hit a Toyota Highlander head-on.

Wright and his two passengers, 36-year-old Marcus Thomas and 36-year-old Sylvester Sims Jr were all killed.

The driver of the Highlander, 39-year-old Shaquetta "Nikki" Barnes was also killed.

15-year-old passenger Kamaree Spencer was in the Highlander and was airlifted to GRU for treatment.

GSP said the driver made quote, “bad judgment decisions” and based on what troopers saw, alcohol could be involved. Investigators are scheduled to revisit the crash site Tuesday.

Thomas said it's a sad situation, but knows the community will come together.

“We all love each other,” Thomas said. “We try to help each other and come together when something happens of this nature. I feel like we as a community, we will do that.”
