A sport utility vehicle went airborne and crashed Thursday in Noble County, seriously injuring two adults and a juvenile.
The SUV, a 1999 Mercury Mountaineer, was going west on County Road 415 North at high speed about 6:45 p.m., the sheriffs department said.
The Mountaineer went airborne at the crest of a hill, and when it landed, the driver, Ashley Adcox, 21, lost control. The vehicle left the road and hit a culvert, sending it airborne again and causing it to roll. The juvenile was ejected, and the totaled vehicle came to rest in a field near the roads intersection with County Road 300 East.
Adcox was taken by ambulance to Parkview Regional Medical Center in Fort Wayne, and the juvenile was flown there. A second passenger, Jerimiah Tackett, 21, was taken to Parkview Noble Hospital in Kendallville.
All three were initially listed in serious condition. Updates on their conditions were not available Friday.
They are all from Kendallville. The juveniles name and age were not released. Criminal charges against Adcox and Tackett are pending, the sheriffs department said.
