HIGH POINT, N.C. — Two people are in the hospital following a crash in High Point on Saturday, according to a High Point Police Department news release.

Around 2:35 a.m., officers responded to a traffic crash with injuries in the 1600 block of Deep River Road.

A 2017 Infiniti G50 with two people in it was going south on Deep River Road and went off the road to the right while driving around a curve.

After leaving the road, the vehicle hit two culverts before crossing back over to the left side of the road where it hit a telephone pole and flipped.

At the time of the crash, police said the two people in the vehicle were taken to local hospitals with life threatening injuries.

The driver is now listed in serious condition, and the passengers’s condition has been upgraded to stable condition.

There is no word yet on charges.

The investigation is ongoing.

At this time, police say it appears that speed, alcohol and the failure to wear seatbelts all contributed to the crash and injuries.
