A 31-year-old male passenger suffered fractures to his hip, arms and legs, as well as severe head trauma. He remains in critical condition.

A 28-year-old female passenger suffered back fractures and head trauma and is also in critical condition.

A third passenger, a 32-year-old male, sustained broken ribs and other injuries but is currently in stable condition.

Charges are pending in this case, police said.
