Medics rushed three teenage boys to the hospital early Thursday morning after a high-speed crash near Beaver Lake.
The speeding car lost control, tore through a fence and then slammed into a tree near Southeast 25th Way and Beaver Lake Way Southeast, about a half-mile east of Beaver Lake Park.
Eastside Fire & Rescue crews extricated the boys from the mangled wreck of the white Subaru and transported them to the hospital. Officials described the injuries as not life-threatening and expect all of the teenagers to survive.
Crews had to use the Jaws of Life to pull two of the boys from the crashed car.
Residents in the area called 911 just after midnight to report a loud crashing noise.
The investigation into the crash continues.
