Two males were extricated from a yellow car tonight after the driver lost control and ended up on its top in a crash.

Dayton police said it’s not clear whether drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash, which they said remains under investigation.

By 10:30 p.m., the car was loaded onto a flatbed tow truck to be taken from the scene.

UPDATE @ 9:45 p.m.

Two people were taken to Miami Valley Hospital in serious condition, according to an official from the Dayton Fire Department. Their names, ages and genders were not released.

Lloyd Goff II said he and a co-worker had just come outside to take a break from work when they heard what sounded like a bad crash nearby.

"It sounded like a humongous crash. You could hear the trees breaking and everything," Goff said.

He ran inside to call 911, and his co-worker grabbed a fire extinguisher. The yellow sports car was overturned and burning with a tree going through the driver's side after the crash, Goff said.
