Colorado Springs Police tell 11 News that speed and alcohol are the cause of an early morning accident that sent two young people to a local hospital at 2:00 am Sunday.

Police say the car had four people inside, all minors. It was going down Meadow Ridge toward Lexington at nearly 90 miles per hour when the driver lost control. The car swerved off the road and rolled into a park.

Two males, the driver with serious but non-life threatening injuries and a passenger with possible life threatening head injuries, were transported to a local hospital. The two other passengers were served summons' for illegal consumption of alcohol.

One of the two uninjured passengers originally left the scene of the accident but was brought back to the scene by police. Charges are pending while the investigation continues. Names of the juveniles are not being released at this time.
