EAST PRAIRIE, MO (KFVS) -

Officials with the MSHP are reporting three teenagers have been seriously injured in a crash on County Road 532 near East Prairie, Missouri on Sunday, October 9.

The crash occurred at 11:20 a.m. on Sunday just one mile west of East Prairie. Two 14-year-old juveniles and one 13-year-old were seriously injured in the crash.

Two of the juveniles were flown to a Memphis, Tennessee hospital. The other victim was taken to a Cape Girardeau hospital.

Authorities say no one in the vehicle was wearing a seatbelt.
