3 teens killed, 1 critically injured in Ga. crash

QUITMAN, Ga. (AP) - Authorities in south Georgia say three high school football players have been killed in a car crash.

Georgia State Patrol spokeswoman Tracey Watson says the teens were involved in a one-car crash Tuesday morning north of Quitman - about 20 miles west of Valdosta.

Watson says the driver lost control of the vehicle, which veered off of the road and hit a tree.

State troopers have identified the victims as Jicarre Watkins, Johnie Parker, and Shawn Waters, each 18. Authorities say the teens attended Brooks High School and were on their way to a morning practice session when the accident happened.

Authorities say a fourth teen, De'Vron Whitfield, was airlifted to Shands hospital in Jacksonville, Fla.

A vigil is scheduled for 6 p.m. at Brooks High School.
