THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -  Monday afternoon, 33-year-old Lee Parramore and his three daughters ages 9,11, and 12 were driving down Stuart Road in Thomasville.

The children said Parramore swerved to avoid two cars that were racing and taking up both lanes.  Parramore's car flipped three times. He and the 12-year-old were thrown out of the car.

Parramore died at Archbold Hospital Tuesday from head injuries. The girls are ok.   GSP is looking for a light-colored sedan driven by a white man and a black pick-up truck driven by a black man. They think the men were racing.

If you have any information call the state patrol at 229-225-4000.
