The youths included two males and three females.

Clay County Sheriff Bill Bergquist said two teens underwent surgery early Sunday for broken bones.

He said none of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening, but he added that authorities weren't privy to the conditions of the teens Sunday afternoon.

He said he could not release the identities of the injured because they are minors.

Speed and alcohol appear to be possible factors in the crash, he said, adding that charges may be possible in the case.

The crash occurred about two miles north of Dilworth on Clay County Road 18, just west of Clay County Road 11.

The crash remains under investigation, Bergquist said.
