LAFAYETTE -

Four teens went to area hospitals after their SUV blew a tire and rolled off northbound Interstate 65 near the State Road 26 Exit early Monday morning.

Police say that the red 1999 Chevrolet Blazer driven by Cory Allen, 19, from Oxford, Indiana was northbound just after 12:30 a.m. when a rear tire blew, causing Allen to lose control and over-correct, causing the Blazer to roll several times before coming to rest on the driver's side.

The driver's side back seat passenger, Cole Liggett, 18, Otterbein, was transported to IU Arnett in Lafayette with life threatening injuries.

Allen was transported to Franciscan St. Elizabeth Hospital East in Lafayette.  Front seat passenger Kyle Bryant, 18, of Lafayette was also transported to St. Elizabeth East with complaint of pain. He was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash.

The middle seat passenger, Jordan Rooze, 19, Oxford, was also transported to IU Arnett Hospital with complaint of pain.

The right side back seat passenger, Nicholas Satchell, 18, Otterbein, was not injured.

All of the back seat passengers were not wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.

It is unsure at this time if drugs and or alcohol played a part in the crash.
