A violent crash left three teenagers injured on South Vernon Avenue Tuesday afternoon.

They were riding in a small SUV when they hit a dip south of Clarendon Drive and flew out of control into a utility pole, which was torn out of the ground and dragged several feet. A 17-year-old male passenger in the backseat was ejected from the vehicle, and the Jaws of Life were used to rescue two female passengers, both 16, from the front seats.

All three were taken to Methodist hospital in unknown condition. Police told WFAA that the students were skipping class at the time of the crash. The TV station also reported that the male passenger is the owner of the vehicle.
