MUNCIE, Ind. — One teen is in critical condition and 5 others also have been hurt after the SUV they were riding in crashed on a hilly, curvy road near Muncie.

The Star Press reports 18-year-old Aaron Kelly of Muncie was in critical condition Sunday after being airlifted to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.

The newspaper and WTHR-TV report two other 18-year-old men and three juvenile girls were taken to Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie following the crash late Saturday.

Delaware County Sheriff's Office Lt. Arlan Johnson says investigators believe the SUV struck a utility pole and some trees along a road southeast of Muncie.

Johnson says five of the teens, including Kelly, are students at Muncie Southside High School, and the sixth attends Yorktown High School west of Muncie.
