Nashville parents remember their 11-year-old daughter killed in I-65 crash
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Nashville family is mourning the loss of their 11-year-old daughter and sister.
Earlier this month, Charasma Moseley, her daughter Karmyn, and daughter-in-law Lauren, traveled to Orange Beach, Alabama, for a girls’ getaway.
On their way back to Nashville, the trio had a horrific car accident on I-65 North near Montgomery, Ala.
“I remember waking up on the side of the road. I thought I was dreaming. I saw them pull my daughter-in-law out of the car,” Charasma said. “I looked for Karmyn and saw someone trying to get her out of the car and they kind of laid her down next to the car on the ground.”
The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency reports that a tractor-trailer hit three cars, including Charasma’s. One of these cars then hit an SUV and another vehicle. Seven people were injured and Karmyn died at the scene.
“It’s just sad that we don’t have him with us right now,” said his father Ron.
Her heartbroken parents told News 2 that Karmyn was in 6th grade at Nashville Classical Charter School where she was involved in basketball, a journalism program and a pitch team. They described her as bubbly, outgoing and a true leader, with a lovely smile.
“She was nice to people and really led by example,” Ron said.
Alabama law enforcement has not confirmed the cause of the accident or whether the driver of the 18-wheeler will be charged.
Karmyn’s parents say their lives are forever changed.
“There’s just no explanation from anyone and I just want to put our baby to rest,” Ron said. “What helps us deal with it is our faith in God and the faith of Karmyn. His memory will be perpetuated, by all means, trust and believe.
Karmyn’s viewing will be Friday, March 25 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Terrell Broady Funeral Home on Clarksville Pike.
Visitation will be Saturday, March 26 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. and funeral will follow at the Old Hickory location in Mt. Zion with interment at Springhill Cemetery.
