GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Officials at a Florida hospital say the condition of a high school student who's the sole survivor of a deadly car crash in south Georgia is improving.

Officials at Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Fla., said Wednesday De'Vron Whitfield's condition has been upgraded to fair.

Whitfield was one of four Brooks County High School football players in an SUV that slammed into a tree near Quitman around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. The other three teens -- Jicarre Watkins, Johnie Parker and Shawn Waters -- died in the crash.
