JEFFERSON | Three 19-year-old males who authorities say sneaked onto a dirt racetrack in the southeastern South Dakota town of Jefferson to turn some laps were injured when their car rolled.

Union County sheriff's deputies and South Dakota Highway Patrol officers responded to the crash Sunday afternoon at the Park Jefferson Speedway. Authorities say two of the three males were thrown from the car when it went out of control and rolled, and all three were injured.

They were taken to a hospital in Sioux City, Iowa, with undisclosed injuries — one by medical helicopter and the other two by ambulance. Authorities did not identify them.

The sheriff's office says the owner of the track has indicated he will not press trespassing charges.
