Two teenagers suffered serious injuries and three more were hurt after a car crashed through a utility pole and into a tree in Westwood, according to police.
Authorities were notified about the single-car crash, which happened on Pond Street in the area of Martingale Lane, just after 12:30 a.m. Saturday.
Westwood police officers and firefighters found the vehicle impaled on a tree when they arrived at the scene.
Police say there were five teenagers in the vehicle, all of whom are from Westwood. Three suffered relatively minor injuries, but two were seriously injured.
All five teens were treated and/or transported to area hospitals.
Police said one of the teenagers was in very serious condition at a Boston area hospital, but was doing much better as of Sunday morning.
Another victim suffered less visible but serious injuries.
Police were told that both of the victims who were seriously injured should ultimately recover and be OK. The other three victims of the crash were medically released on Saturday.
None of the victims have been identified by authorities.
Police say one of the teenagers who was seriously injured was in the backseat and was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash. The four other teens were wearing seat belts when the crash happened.
Investigators believe the car crossed the centerline of Pond Street, struck a curb and became air-bound before crashing into the utility pole, which was shattered and severed in half. After hitting the utility pole, the car continued off the roadway and crashed head-on into the tree, according to police.
Westwood police continue to investigate the crash.
