BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - State troopers say a Semmes man has
become the third person to die in a traffic crash during the Thanksgiving holiday.
Troopers report that 27-year-old Jeremy Michael Evans was killed
before dawn Friday when his 1998 pickup was struck by an 18-wheeler in Mobile County. Officials say Evans was traveling south when he ran a traffic light at U.S. 98.
There also were two fatalities in north Alabama.
Troopers said 21-year-old Joseph Malone of Athens wasn't wearing
a seat belt when he lost control of his car on Thanksgiving day.
They said 71-year-old Jerry Long was killed early Thursday when
the golf cart he was driving collided with a pickup near a golf course about five miles from Athens.
