Authorities say a teen was ejected and two other people injured after an SUV crashed into a tree in Fairview.

It happened on Friday, December 29, 2017, at 1822 Cane Creek Road.

Highway Patrol says one driver and two passengers were inside the vehicle when it traveled off the road to the right and collided into a tree. Troopers say the front right passenger, a 13-year-old girl, was ejected from the vehicle.

All three occupants were taken to the hospital. Authorities have not yet identified anyone involved in the wreck or their conditions.

Cane Creek Road was temporarily shut down at the 1800 block as crews responded to the scene.

The road has since reopened.

Authorities said charges are pending in this incident and will be determined once the investigating trooper speaks with the driver.

This story will be updated as details become available.
