STEVENSON RANCH (CBSLA) - Three trapped high school seniors were extricated by firefighters after a car slammed into a tree in Stevenson Ranch near Santa Clarita Thursday afternoon.
At about 12:35 p.m., firefighters responded to the 20000 block of Maple Tree Court where they were able to free the three teens from a Honda wrapped around a tree.
The teens, two 18-year-olds and one 17-year old, were transported to local hospitals.
Two of the teens, the drive and a passenger in the back seat, were reported to be in stable condition with minor injuries. The third person who was sitting in the passenger seat was reported to be in serious condition.
The three teens are all seniors at West Ranch High School, which gets out for summer break on Friday.
Police believe speed was a factor in the crash.
