A single vehicle crash on a Lexington road sent four people to the hospital, two of them with critical injuries.

Accident reconstruction has determined that a woman driving the car veered off the road then over-corrected, sending the car into a tree.

Police say the three passengers were not wearing seat belts, however everyone is expected to recover.

It happened on Ferguson Road, just off Russell Cave In Fayette County just before noon Friday.

We're told there were three teenagers and a woman driver. One person was airlifted from the scene, but the other three were taken to the hospital by ambulance. Police say two of those people have critical injuries.

Neighbors say there is a slope in the bridge that sometimes sends cars airborne if they travel at high speeds. The same people also say it's common for people to drive 60 to 70 miles an hour down this stretch of road.
