Alabama car crash kills 3 high school cheerleaders on Christmas
Three Alabama high school cheerleaders were killed on Christmas Day when one lost control of their car and smashed into a tree, authorities said Thursday.
The 16-year-old girls — Addyson Martin, Emilee Fain and Cassidy Dunn — had just left a home where they were celebrating the holiday together when their SUV careened off the road about 6 p.m., authorities said.

“We’re not sure for what reason they lost control, but it hit a big oak tree,” said Lt. Michael McDuffie, a spokesman for the Geneva Police Department.
“It could have been a deer ran out in front of them,” he said.
