MACON COUNTY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency has released the name of a person killed in a two-vehicle crash that, according to Macon County Sheriff Andre Brunson, involved one of his officers.

ALEA said the crash happened shortly after 5:30 p.m. Tuesday on U.S. Highway 80 at North Lake Street. That’s about a half-mile from Tuskegee.

Edwin D. Moss, 32, of Tuskegee was killed when the 2003 Hyundai Sonata he was a passenger in collided with a 2013 Ford-150 driven by Darian K. Locure, 47, also of Tuskegee, ALEA stated.

The driver of the Hyundai, Antonio M. Daniel, 38, of Tuskegee, was not injured, ALEA said.

Locure was driving an unmarked Macon County Sheriff’s Office vehicle and was transported to an area hospital for treatment of undisclosed injuries.

Brunson initially said Locure was off duty at the time. On Friday, he sent a correction that Locure was on duty.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims’ family and friends, and also the officer’s family and friends,” Brunson said.

Alabama state troopers continue to investigate the crash.

On Friday, Brunson said Locure remains hospitalized.
