GRAND RIDGE, Fla. (AP) - Troopers say three teens died when their car skidded off the road and crashed into an oak tree in the Florida Panhandle.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol 15-year-old Ted Michael Jeter was driving a 1999 Buick about 3 p.m. Thursday when it drifted off a Jackson County road. Troopers say the driver overcorrected, causing the car to skid into the tree.
The News Herald of Panama City (http://bit.ly/QqOcCr ) reports 16-year-old Kristian Bo McClamma and 16-year-old Christopher Brandon Hobbs were passengers in the car. Jeter and McClamma were dead at the scene. Hobbs died later at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.
Troopers say the teens were wearing seatbelts.
