(MIDLAND) - Indiana Conservation Officers responded to a UTV crash involving injuries to the driver and both passengers in Midland.

At about 9 p.m. Tuesday, 28-year-old Jesse Hill drove off the roadway and struck a wooden electrical pole at a high-rate of speed.

Hill was hospitalized with fractured ribs and complaining of chest pain. Police say 25-year-old Sarah Bozeman was propelled through the windshield during the crash which broke her right arm.

A 2-year-old girl was also in the vehicle and received a minor head contusion.

The investigation is ongoing and it is currently believed that prescription medication use may have been a factor in the crash.
