UPDATE: Victims airlifted from Plymouth crash

PLYMOUTH, Ind. -- Two victims were airlifted to South Bend Memorial Hospital Saturday afternoon after a car crash in Marshall County.

The passenger car was driving north on Tulip Road from 9C Road in Plymouth when it lost control and smashed into a tree.

"They actually had to extricate the driver and the passengers from the vehicle," said Patrolman Jonathan Bryant of the Marshall County Sheriff's Dept.

The two passengers in the front of the vehicle were adult males in their 20s and sustained the worst injuries.

A girl and dog were in the back seat -- both walked away from the scene without apparent injuries.

Police believe alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

"Speed and possibly alcohol," Bryant said. "At this point, we're still in the preliminary portion of the investigation."

Because of the victim's injuries, police were unable to conduct a blood alcohol test on the scene.

The appropriate tests were done when the victims arrived at the hospital.
