A fifth person has died after a sport utility vehicle carrying high school cheerleaders collided with an oncoming car on a rural East Tennessee road, authorities said.
Hospital spokeswoman Myala Romines says 15-year-old Ashley Mason died Saturday night.
She was ejected from the SUV after it hydroplaned and slammed into the oncoming Ford Taurus late Friday.
Police identified the other teenagers who were killed as Scarlette A. Hill, 17, Jaime Hill, 15, and Shirley N. Hughett, 16, who was driving the SUV.
Mason died at the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville.
A passenger in the car, Jeweline Ledbetter King, was killed.
King's 22-year-old daughter-in-law, Miranda King, lost her unborn child from injuries in the crash.
