Moore was seriously injured. His passenger, 20-year-old Kemarr Thomas, was killed in the crash.

A 60-year-old woman who lives on the second story of the duplex had to be rescued by firefighters out of her bedroom window by climbing down a ladder. WTOL 11 talked to the woman's sister Vickie Ross, who said she was terrified.
