A Boyle County football player was injured in a violent crash Thursday night.

Justin Roution, 17, was alone in a car traveling eastbound on U.S. 150 West in Lincoln County around 8:00 p.m., when he lost control, left the road, went into the grass median and crashed head-on into a culvert wall, according to investigators.

The car flipped and Roution was trapped inside, according to Sheriff's Deputies.

It took rescue crews 20-minutes to cut Roution out of the car, according to investigators.

He was airlifted to UK Hospital in Lexington where officials said he was listed in fair condition.

Investigators said they were still trying to determine what caused the high school senior to crash.

Roution played linebacker and offensive lineman for the Rebels this past season.
