Berlin woman dies in crash

THOMASVILLE — A 31-year-old Berlin woman died in a two-vehicle crash on Ga. 122 Tuesday afternoon.

Mary Jean Haynes, 359 Railroad St., Berlin, was eastbound on Ga. 122 driving a 2003 Toyota Corolla about 3:15 p.m. Tuesday.

“There was a vehicle n front of her that had slowed down to make a left turn onto Airport Road,” said Sgt. Tommy Peeples, Thomasville Post 12 Georgia State Patrol commander.

The Toyota attempted to pass the slowed vehicle on the left, traveled into the westbound lane and struck a westbound vehicle head-on.

The vehicle struck by the Toyota was a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 driven by Sterling Knight Alligood, 37, 1724 McGarrah Road, Ochlocknee. The truck is owned by Grady Electric Membership Corp.

After impact, the Toyota rotated counterclockwise, traveled off the side of the road and overturned, coming to rest in a ditch on the south side of the highway.

Peeples said Alligood, who did not suffer life-threatening injuries, was transported to Archbold Memorial Hospital.

Haynes was not wearing a seatbelt. Alligood was wearing shoulder and lap belts.

“Air bags deployed on both vehicles.” Peeples said.
