The vehicle, with two teens on board, left the roadway and impacted a tree in the front yard of a home with enough force to topple the tree and cause heavy damage to the vehicle.

According to Robertson County EMS Assistant Director Josh Rice, both teens (the 16-year-old driver, and a 17-year-old passenger, both male) were transported to area hospitals in stable condition. The driver was transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, and the passenger to TriStar NorthCrest in Springfield.
