SALT LAKE CITY -- An early morning rollover crash involving a stolen car sent three people to the hospital. Two of them are teenagers.

Police say a 13-year-old was driving when the car rolled near 2200 West and 1100 North shortly before 3:30 a.m. A 15-year-old was in the passenger seat and a 20-year-old was in the back seat.

The vehicle skidded across oncoming traffic, hit a stop sign and then a tree. The vehicle then rolled onto a grass embankment where it came to a stop upside down.

Lt. David Cracroft with the Salt Lake City Police Department said, "When we figured out where they started to skid and crash, they were probably going over the speed limit, but they weren't going like 70, 80, 100."

All three people in the car were conscious and talking when police arrived. The two teens were taken to Primary Children's Medical Center in serious condition. Police say they are sending officers there to question the teens about what happened.

"We're still trying to determine who they are and where they belong," Cracroft said.

Police don't know yet if the teens were responsible for stealing the vehicle.
