GRAVES COUNTY, Ky. (KFVS) - Two teens were rescued from a car after a crash on KY 1890.

On December 7, around 10 a.m., a car ran off the road on KY 1890 (Sharon Church Road) between Hayes School Road and KY 121 South. The car landed in about 4 feet of water.

According to Graves County deputies, the driver and passenger were both 16 years old.

They say the driver was out of the car and the front seat passenger was still in the car, trapped. They said her upper body was out of the water.

First responders were able to get both teens out of the creek and up the bank safely.

According to deputies, the 2015 Land Rover left the right side of the roadway on the shoulder. The car continued over a concrete wall and traveled 400 feet on the shoulder to the east side of a creek bank.

The car went airborne across the creek and crashed into the west side creek bank head-on.

It came to a rest in the creek.

Both teens were taken to an area hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The Graves County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Sedalia Fire Department, Mayfield/Graves County EMS, the Mayfield Fire Department and the Kentucky State Police.
