Man sentenced in Dawson hit and run

Man pleads guilty in Dawson vehicle deaths

DAWSON — A Terrell County man has been sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to killing two people in a hit-and-run accident in 2013.

Court officials state that Scotty Oxford, 36, was sentenced Monday to a total of 30 years, with the first eight of those in prison and the remainder on supervised probation.

Court records show Oxford entered guilty pleas to two counts of homicide by vehicle, one count of hit and run and one count of serious injury by vehicle.

The fatal incident occurred in February, 2013, when police say Latosha Harvey and her 4-year-old daughter, Emani, were killed as they walked across U.S. Highway 82 just north of Dawson. Police records show they were struck by a tractor-trailer rig driven by Oxford. A third victim, 23-year-old Adrianna Glover, was severely injured in the incident and taken to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital in Albany, officials stated.

Oxford fled the crash scene on foot, but later surrendered to authorities in Eufaula, Ala. and was transported back to Dawson.
