BOURNE (CBS) – Two people were seriously hurt when a car crashed, rolled over on its side and then landed next to a home on the Cape.

Bourne Police believe the driver of the 1999 Ford Escort was speeding when he lost control of the vehicle just before 11 p.m. on Shore Road.

Investigators said the car was heading south when it veered off the road to the right and tore through three front yards before it hit a dirt planting bed embankment.  That launched the car into the air and on its side.  It hit an SUV and landed next to a house in a driveway.

The driver, a 28-year-old man from Falmouth, and his passenger, a 31-year-old man from Bourne were trapped in the car.  They were eventually pulled out and rushed to a hospital in a medical rescue helicopter.

Neighbors told WBZ-TV that people were home at the time of the crash.

Mark Vigeant, who saw the crash said, “They looked unresponsive when I saw them being carried out for the rescue. They didn’t look too well.”

“This time of year is supposed to be enjoyed with family. When something like this happens, it puts a negative spin on a holiday,” he added.

Their names have not been made public.

Officials said speed was likely a contributing factor.
