QUITMAN, Ga. — Three high school football players were killed in a car crash in south Georgia on the way to practice Tuesday morning. 

Georgia State Patrol spokeswoman Tracey Watson says the teens were involved in a one-car crash 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, all 18. Authorities say the teens attended Brooks High School.

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