Crash after trespassing sends three teens to hospital

Posted: Updated:

A one-car crash has sent three teenagers to a Sioux City hospital after, authorities say, they trespassed onto a speedway track that was closed for the season.

It happened Sunday afternoon at the Park Jefferson Speedway in Jefferson, SD. The community sits in Union County just north of Sioux City.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating, saying the speedway is closed but somehow the driver and two passengers got onto the track.

Officials say they believe the driver tried to fishtail and ended up rolling over several times. Two of the tens were ejected and sent to the hospital via an ambulance. The third was airlifted to Sioux City.

All three teens, 19 years-old, are in serious condition. No names have been released.
