Three men were injured in a one-vehicle crash early Saturday about four miles north of Hodgenville after their vehicle slammed into a tree.

Just before 3 a.m., Justin Masterson, 20, of Sonora was driving southbound on U.S. 31E in a 1997 Ford pickup when he ran off the left side of the roadway and hit a tree, according to Kentucky State Police. Masterson was flown to University Hospital in Louisville and was listed in serious condition in intensive care Monday evening.

A landing zone was set up for Life Net in a field near the wreck site.
