Three teens were hurt in a serious rollover late Sunday in Baca County. It happened on Baca County Road CC, a half mile west of CR 44.
Investigators say a Chevy pickup was on CR CC when it slid and went off the right side of the road. The truck came back on the road,the driver over-corrected and the pickup rolled several times.
One teen was thrown from the truck. All three teens were taken to a hospital in nearby Springfield. A 15 year old girl was then airlifted to Swedish Medical Center in Englewood with critical injuries. A 14 year old girl was also airlifted there with serious injuries.
A 17 year old boy was treated for minor injuries.
Investigators say speed appears to be a factor in the crash.
