TAYLORSPORT, KY (FOX19) - Three tri-state teens were hospitalized after a roll-over crash in Boone County.

It happened around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday evening in the 5200 block of River Road (KY-8).

Deputies say Lauren Houston, 18, had just passed another vehicle when she lost control of her car in a curve, ran off the road, hit a concrete sewer apparatus and rolled several times.  Investigators say excessive speed is considered a contributing factor.

Houston and her passengers,  Chris Doebeli, 18, and a 16-year-old were all wearing their seatbelts.  They were transported to Cincinnati hospitals.  Their injuries are reported to be non life-threatening.
