(MITCHELL) - Four people were hurt Sunday morning when the van they were in crashed into a gate.

According to a Lawrence County Police report, 29-year-old Yvonne Haste of Mitchell was driving a 2003 Pontiac Montana west on State Road 60 West near Mounce Road when she lost control of the van attempting to avoid a large bird in the roadway.

Police say the van began skidding sideways, left the north side of the road, went into a ditch and slid into a gate and fence, causing the van to flip and land on its top.

Haste and the 14-year-old passenger were flung from the vehicle. Neither were wearing seat belts during the incident.

Yvonne Haste suffered a possible fractured hip. The 14-year-old complained of body pain.

Two other passengers suffered bruises and complained of body pain.

An Indiana University Health Bedford Hospital and Seals ambulance transported the injured to local hospitals.
