(BEDFORD) - Two teenage brothers suffered serious injuries after the vehicle they were in crashed Friday afternoon on Vinegar Hill Road.

After being freed from the wreckage, both were flown from the scene by Air Evac helicopter to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis for treatment. Both were wearing seat belts.

16-year-old Zachary Prince suffered a broken sternum, ribs, a facial laceration and numerous bruises. His brother, 17-year-old Jesse Prince, suffered a broken back and neck, two broken legs, ribs, a bruised lung and stomach and has so far underwent two surgeries.

According to a Lawrence County police report, was traveling west on Vinegar Hill Road in a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am when the car went off the north side of the road and traveled for about 24 feet. Prince then overcorrected, causing the vehicle to go 41 feet across the roadway and then off the south side of the road where it traveled another 52 feet before striking a tree which caused the vehicle to vault 50 feet into the air landing on its side and it then skidded more than 100 feet before striking another tree, stopping the car.

An accident reconstructionist and the Shawswick Township Volunteer Fire Department and Bedford Fire Department and ambulances from Seals and IU Health Hospital responded.
