A Thomasville woman died after driving into the path of another car. Two others were injured.

Seventy-seven-year-old Mary C. Alligood died Sunday night at Archbold Memorial Hospital after an accident around 5:30 that evening. Alligood was at the stop sign at North Pinetree Boulevard and Patterson Still Road intersection in Thomas County when she pulled in front of a car driven by 17-year-old Sarah Lynn Westberg of Cairo.

Westberg was treated and released from the hospital. Alligood's passenger, 57-year-old Patricia Powers of Thomasville, is listed as stable.

In Colquitt County, another southwest Georgia woman died this weekend after pulling in front of another car.

Eighty-one-year-old Jean Edna Teasley of Moultrie died Sunday around noon in Colquitt County. Teasley attempted to take a left onto Sam Sells Road from Georgia 133, but drove into the path of 50-year-old Martha Moody of Valdosta.

Moody was treated and released from the hospital. Teasley's passenger, 84-year-old Sylvia Horton of Moultrie, is in fair condition.

Troopers say Teasley was not wearing a seat belt.
