NAVARRE, Fla. -- A teenage driver and her mother face misdemeanor charges in a Florida Panhandle crash that killed a Massachusetts woman.
Florida Highway Patrol says the 15-year-old driver pulled her SUV into the path of a car driven by Margaret Catyb's son in June. The Dracut, Mass., woman was visiting family.
Catyb died at a hospital. Neither her son nor the teenage driver was seriously injured.
State troopers tell the Pensacola News Journal that the teenager has been charged with failing to yield the right of way at a stop sign, violating her driving learner's permit and failing to obtain a driver's license.
The teen's mother was charged with allowing an unauthorized person to operate a motor vehicle. Both the teen and her mother were released from custody after posting bond.
