Three teenagers received injuries Saturday night in an accident at Success. 

A Cabool teenager was seriously injured in a crash early Saturday on Highway PP north of his hometown.

Tpr. S.J. Crewse said a northbound 2002 Chevrolet Suburban driven by Jonathan Skyles, 19, lost control on a curve, skidded off the left side of the roadway, struck a ditch and overturned at about 5 a.m.

Skyles, who was not wearing a seat belt, was taken by ambulance to Texas County Memorial Hospital and then airlifted to a hospital in Springfield.

Crewse said the vehicle was totaled.

Skyles was home from college, and remains in intensive care Monday. A long recovery is expected, according to a family friend.
