Three siblings were injured in a single-vehicle crash on Interstate 24 East early Monday evening.

The two brothers and sister, ages 17, 14 and 12, were near mile marker 101 in Coffee County when the crash occurred at 5 p.m.

"They were traveling east on I-24 and went off the road into the median down a hill," said Manchester Fire Chief George DeShields. "The vehicle rolled over several times and ended up facing west in the west bound lane of travel."

The 17-year-old driver was driving and had to be cut out of his seatbelt.

The 14-year-old in the passenger seat was wearing a seatbelt, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, but was still thrown from the car.

The teens' 12-year-old sister was also wearing a seatbelt in the backseat.

All three were airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Their names aren't being released by authorities.

THP Sgt Bill Miller told News 2 late Tuesday that all three are in stable condition at Vanderbilt.
