Two passengers who weren't wearing their seatbelts were ejected from a vehicle during a one-car crash this week.

North Central EMS transported Kyle M. Hewitt, 22, and Samantha N. Adcock, 26, both of 18 E. Elm St., to Fisher-Titus Medical Center with possible injuries. They were taken to the hospital after the accident at 1:40 p.m. Monday on Ridge Road.

The state Highway Patrol charged the driver, Jessica M. Friend, 21, also of 18 E. Elm St., with failure to control. Trooper Cody Nevers, in his report, said Friend was southbound on Ridge Road when she failed to negotiate a left-hand curve.

The driver went off the left side, where the vehicle hit a tree. Nevers reported Friend was wearing her seatbelt and wasn't ejected, but North Central also took her to Fisher-Titus with possible injuries.

Drugs and alcohol aren't considered factors in the crash.
