MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Students and teachers in an Alabama town are mourning the death of a middle school principal who died in a car crash over the weekend.
Alabama State Troopers say 49-year-old Alan Thompson was killed in a two-vehicle crash Saturday night at the intersection of Alabama 14 and Cherokee Trail Road.
He was in his first year as principal of Southside Middle School in Tallassee.
Superintendent Kenneth Varner said Thompson made an impact on the school and on the community even though he'd been in town for a relatively short period of time.
