DPS officials say there were seven occupants in the crash, five of which were ejected from the vehicle. Five of the passengers were juvenile, ranging in ages from two to 15.

Two passengers were air-lifted to the hospital, and two others were transported by ambulance to the hospital with unknown injuries.
