Post-Prom Crash Leaves Two South Jersey Teens Dead, Community in Mourning

A South Jersey community is reeling after two teenage girls died early Saturday morning in a car crash after attending their prom.

Daisia Sulton, 17, and Mikayla Mosley, 15, both of Bridgeton, Cumberland County, were on their way home from a post-prom celebration in Ocean City with two other teens about 3:45 a.m. Saturday when Sulton lost control of the car on Route 49, crossed the median and struck a tree.

Sulton and Mosley both died at the scene, police said.

Mosley's aunt and grandmother wept as they talked about the young woman.

"To know that we're never gonna see her smile again, never hear her voice again," her aunt, Sharon Hood, said.

"She died without no family being around her," Annette Patton, Mosley's grandmother, cried.

Niajah Rainner was close friends with both of the girls.

"I lost two of my best friends in the same day," Rainner said, breaking down.

Two other teens who were in the car at the time, Jada Barriento, 17, and and Eyiah Stocks, 16, remained in the hospital Sunday morning. Both were in critical condition when they were taken to Cooper Medical Center from the site of the crash.

Social media posts indicated the girls attended the Bridgeton High School prom Friday night. School officials said grief counselors would be made available to students on Monday.

The cause of the crash remained under investigation by State Police on Sunday.
