Investigators said the front passenger, 18 year old Haley McDuffie, was trapped in the truck for an hour and that they used the jaws of life to get her out.
McDuffie was taken to Christus Hospital St.Elizabeth with broken bones and is in stable condition.
Both rear passengers, William Tucker, 17, and Chae Buller, 17, were also taken to local hospitals with broken bones.
Everyone is expected to be ok.
