Motorcyclist killed in Gwinnett hit and run accident

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -- Gwinnett County Police are looking for the driver who hit and killed a 24-year-old motorcyclist over the weekend.

The accident happened Sunday at around 12:45 a.m., at Gravel Springs and Camp Branch roads near Buford. First responders found the victim, Scott Moseley, lying in the road. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

After speaking with witnesses, investigators determined Moseley tried to turn left from Camp Branch Road onto Gravel Springs Road. He likely struck a raised median and was thrown from his motorcycle.

Police believe a vehicle then ran over Moseley as he was lying in the road, killing him. The vehicle's driver did not stop or call 911.

Police described the vehicle as a dark-colored 1990-93 Honda Accord. They say it will have damage to the right front side.

A witness called 911 after Moseley was thrown from his motorcycle and before he was run over. "Yeah, I witnessed a motorcycle accident," the caller said. Moments later the call abruptly ended. Police believe the caller accidentally disconnected while he watched the car hit Moseley.

"It's likely in this case that the driver may have only faced a traffic charge or maybe even nothing, but he has an obligation to stop," said Cpl. Michele Pihera.

"He was a fun-loving, artistic, literate book lover," Margaret Moseley said of her son. "He would bring home stacks from the library or the book store. He was just an all around kid who loved life and loved adventure."

"We're really hoping whoever did this would have second thoughts and come forward and take responsibility," Jon Moseley, Scott's father, said.

"That's our plea," his mother said. "Just turn yourself in and let the legal system handle it instead of spending the rest of your life with that on your conscience."
