Kentucky State Police said street racing sent four Marion County teenagers to the hospital Friday night.

Troopers said Dakota Mattingly, 18, and Jacob Smith, 18, were racing on Scotts Ridge Road. They said Mattingly was in the wrong lane.

According to police, the teens collided during the race, which caused Smith’s car to crash into a tree and flip over.

Three of the teenagers were taken to University of Louisville Hospital, with the other teen being flown to UK Hospital.

Police said they are all in stable condition.

Troopers said none of the teens were wearing seatbelts.
