DUBOIS -- Two teens were ejected from their vehicle during a crash Thursday morning. One of them had to be airlifted.
Police say the driver, 18-year-old Nicholas Burgan of Jasper entered a curve on Dubois Road N.E. at a high rate of speed, went off of the roadway about a half mile north of CR 735 East, and overturned twice before coming to a rest.
Both teens were thrown about 25 feet. They weren’t wearing seat belts.
The passenger, a Jasper minor, suffered possible arm and shoulder injuries. Since he’s under the age of 18, WITZ will not release his name.
Burgan was airlifted to an Evansville hospital for a possible head injury.
Police say both teens suffered more significant injuries because they weren’t wearing their seat belts.
Investigators do not believe drugs or alcohol were a factor.
