A two-car accident on 2900 W and 2000 S., south of Aberdeen, resulted in a series of injuries to five local teens. All of the teens were transported to the hospital via Lifef light or by ambulance.

Bingham County Deputy Sheriff Jeff Gardner said that all were seriously injured but should recover. Injured in the accident were Jasmin and Leonel Brambila and their cousin Gerardo Escalante, who were later transported to University of Utah hospital and Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City, UT. Jasmin had to undergo heart surgery and on Wednesday started to respond. The Brambila's and Escalante are in ICU in stable condition.

William Toevs and Bridger Vollmer, occupants of the other vehicle, were transported to Power County Hospital. Vollmer has since been released with broken ribs. Toevs had injuries to his neck.

According to the reports, a maroon car driven by J. Brambila failed to stop at a stop sign and was — boned by the white pickup. Those in the car were not wearing seatbelts and one was ejected while the others were trapped in the vehicle. The jaws of life were needed to release one of them.

Agencies from Bingham County, Power County Sheriff's Office, fire and ambulance from Aberdeen and Aberdeen Police Chief Dalling all worked the scene.
