Thomasville - Investigators say around 9:00 Friday night, 19-year old Breckney Diane Hamilton of Coolidge ran a stop sign on Cone Road and pulled onto highway 84 in front of 19-year old Crystal Michelle Willis of Quitman.

Willis struck the passenger side of Hamilton's car, sending it across the road where it overturned and struck a utility pole with the roof. The impact killed Hamilton and a 12-year old female passenger. A 2-year old male was critically injured and is in Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.

The Georgia State Patrol says all drivers passengers were wearing safety belts and the child was in child seat. The accident is still until investigation. The speed limit at that area is 65 mph.
