ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Police have ticketed two teenage girls in connection with a drag racing accident that sent two people to the hospital.

Arkansas City police cited 18-year-old Hunter Lenox and 19-year-old Ashley McCoy for drag racing over the weekend. Lenox was also cited for reckless driving.

Police said Sunday that Lenox lost control of her SUV because she was speeding. They say it launched into the air and struck a tree.

Fire crews removed Lenox and a front-seat passenger from her SUV within about an hour. Both were taken to an area hospital and treated for minor injuries. A 16-year-old passenger from the back seat was able to exit the vehicle and wasn’t taken to the hospital.

McCoy’s car didn’t crash and she was cited later.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Lenox or McCoy have attorneys.
