A 12-year-old boy had to be airlifted to Westchester Medical Center after the car he was driving crashed in Orange County early Friday and overturned repeatedly, police officers said.
The teenager was with five other people in a Honda Pilot on westbound State Route 17 near Exit 119 in the town of Wallkill at around 8:15 a.m. when the SUV went off the roadway, New York State Police said.
The Honda then rolled over several times, throwing the boy and one of the other occupants out of the vehicle, police said.
The boy was flown to Westchester Medical Center, where his condition was serious.
The five other passengers were taken to Garnet Medical Center in Wallkill.
Their terms were unknown.
Police released a photo of the gray, crushed SUV leaning against a guardrail.
Authorities did not initially say why the Honda went off the road.
No other cars were involved, police said.
