ROCHESTER (CBS) — Three Middleboro men were seriously injured after a high-speed crash.

It happened around 6 p.m. Tuesday on Neck Road in Rochester. Police observed the car heading southbound at a high rate of speed when it rounded a curve and ran off the side of the roadway. Police say the car became airborne, sheared off a telephone poll, rolled over and ejected two of the three men.

Police identify the men as 20-year-old Joshua A. DeMoranville, 19-year-old Samuel Pike and 18-year old Antone Arruda. Two of the men were taken to Rhode Island Hospital. A third was airlifted to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.

Neck Road was closed to traffic for six hours while police investigated. No charges or citations have been issued by police.
