Family, friends mourn the loss of Douglas Co. teen killed in crash
News


Monday night, family and friends gathered to remember a Douglas County teen killed in a car crash.

The Georgia State patrol says Josh Murphycrossed the center line of Highway 5 last Wednesday and hit another car head on.

GDOT told 11Alive's Dontaye Carter they had crews out Monday driving this curve to evaluate it.

"It sucks seeing a teen just go that quick," said Madycen Wheeler, a friend of Josh. "You see him and then he's gone the next day."

GDOT said they spoke with officials in Douglas County to look at how they could make that highway safer. They have talked about lowering the speed limit and adding more signage.
