Troopers said the driver of a Range Rover SUV apparently ran off the road in a curve, overcorrected, and the vehicle overturned.

Two teens were ejected from the SUV. Troopers said only the driver, 17-year-old Anne Madeline Crone, was wearing a seatbelt.

Crone was treated and released Friday night at Halifax Regional Hospital.

Eighteen-year-old Janie Fountain was airlifted to Pit Memorial Hospital, while 17-year-old Tessa Jones was airlifted to UNC Hospital with a broken back. Seventeen-year-old Grace Barnard was taken to Wake Med with non-life threatening injuries.

The accident is still under investigation, but troopers said alcohol and speed were not factors.
