Three Kent Roosevelt High School juniors remain hospitalized following a one-car crash off Thursday afternoon.
"We responded to the scene and found that two girls were trapped in the vehicle and that one girl was ejected from the vehicle," Kent Police Lt. Paul Canfield said.
The vehicle ended up in the grass off of River Bend Boulevard in Kent. Police received a call at 2:45 regarding the accident.
Canfield says by the time the Jaws of Life finished removing the girls from the car, the vehicle was in bad shape.
All three girls were juveniles and were taken to Akron Children's Hospital and Akron City Hospital. One was taken by a medical helicopter.
School officials tell AkronNewsNow that the students' injuries appear to be non life-threatening.
Witnesses tell police they may have been racing with other vehicles.
