Four teens were injured in a single-vehicle crash outside Buffalo just before 3 p.m. Friday.
According to Deputy Russell McCoy, the driver, Brandon Lewis, 17, lost control of a Ford Mustang on North L&N Turnpike. The car crossed the center line and clipped the shoulder of the roadway. Lewis overcorrected and the car ran off the opposite side of the road, through a ditch, striking several small trees. The car flipped at least once before striking a large tree in the front yard of a residence.
Lewis was ejected from the car.
Lewis and his passengers, Alisha Brooks, 16; Ciera Strausser, 16; and Josh Modrowski, 15, were transported to Hardin Memorial Hospital by LaRue County EMS.
McCoy said it did not appear that any of the teens were wearing seatbelts.
Buffalo Fire and Rescue assisted at the scene.
McCoy said family members were notified of the crash before the juveniles' names were released.
