MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Three people are recovering in the hospital after a violent crash in Minneapolis overnight.

Police said the accident happened around midnight on Upton Avenue North.

Police said the car hit a tree head-on and two of the people inside the car were ejected.

The impact was so severe, the car’s engine block ended up about five homes away and also sheared off the front of the car.

The three people in the car — 22-year-old Deandre Jordan, of Hopkins;  19-year-old Semone Harris, of Minneapolis; and 21-year-old Italea House, of Plymouth — were taken to North Memorial Medical Center and Hennepin County Medical Center.

Police Sgt. Stephen McCarty said the two men are in serious condition.

Officers think speed could have been a factor in the crash.
