NAVARRE, Fla. (AP) -- 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.

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.
