KENT, Ohio - Three high school girls are in serious condition following an accident in Kent Thursday afternoon.
The one-car crash happened on River Bend Boulevard at about 2:44 p.m., Kent police said.
Rescue crews were on scene for about an hour and had to use the Jaws of Life to free two of the victims from the vehicle, Lt. Moore with the Kent Fire Department said. The other victim was ejected from the car.
"I heard some talk of cat and mouse play with several vehicles," Kent Police Lt. Jim Prusha said. It appeared that the car hit the curb and lost control, according to Prusha.
Moore said all three girls are students at Kent Roosevelt High School. The girls were taken to Akron Children’s Hospital and Akron City Hospital. According to Moore, one victim was transported by medical helicopter.
The crash is still under investigation.
