A three vehicle accident quickly cancelled an Amber Alert that had just been released for a four year old child that had been allegedly abducted from her grandmother’s home in Americus by her mother.
At approximately 3:07 p.m. on Thursday, May 16, at the intersection of Georgia 117 (Rhine Road) and US 341 (Terry Coleman Parkway), Priscilla Ann Hurt (age 24), of Americus, was driving a 2003 Chevrolet Malibu east on US 341 when she hit the driver’s side of a 2000 Toyota Camry, driven by Donnie Henry DeLoach (age 25), of Eastman, after he ran the red light at the intersection of Georgia 117. DeLoach was traveling north toward Eastman.
The Malibu then skidded across the grass median and flipped over, ejecting four year old Mi-Kurhea Mumford from the vehicle and then hit a Honda Civic in the driver’s side. The Honda was driven by Bharatkumar D. Mistry (age 47), of Perry.
The Eastman Fire Department had to use the Jaws of Life to extricate DeLoach from his vehicle. Both he and Mumford were air lifted by two separate helicopters to the Medical Center of Central Georgia in Macon.
Mumford was reported to have suffered a skull fracture. DeLoach was reported to have suffered pelvic injuries, broken ribs and a broken collarbone.
No car seat was found in the vehicle driven by Hurt and authorities also do not believe Mumford was wearing a seat belt.
Hurt was taken to Dodge County Hospital and was later turned over to authorities. According to the Americus Police Department, Hurt has been charged with kidnapping her daughter and is currently incarcerated in the Sumter County jail.
Mumford had been living with her grandmother, which is where police think she was when Hurt allegedly abducted her.
According to the Amber Alert sent Thursday, Mumford and Hurt were last seen at 100 Palm Court Springs in Americus, near I-75 in south
Mistry was treated for minor injuries and released.
