The driver, a 21-year-old Hanover man, and three male passengers raging in age from 19 to 21 years of age from Chesley and Elmwood, all sustained injuries and were transported by ambulance to the Hanover District Hospital. Two of the passengers have since been transferred to a London hospital, both in serious condition.
