Lacitrus Gholston Obituary And Car Accident Details
The circumstances of Lacitrus Gholston’s passing have been met with shock and uncertainty. On the evening of the accident, just before 9 p.m., Lacitrus, 33, was driving northbound on GA106/Mize Road, near the intersection with the Highway 17 Bypass.
It is reported that he was driving at a high rate of speed when he failed to maintain his lane while navigating a curve. This loss of control led to a collision with a Ford F250 truck driven by Brian Caleb Phillips, 21, of Toccoa.

The passengers of the truck, including Alyssa Phillips, Breelin Reece, and an unnamed 15-year-old, were transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville.
While all four occupants of the F250 were eventually released from the hospital, they endured fractures, bruises, and lacerations as a result of the accident. WNEG Radio shared a post on Facebook about Lacitrus Gholston’s passing.
