The crash happened just before one Friday morning on Meinert Road near Weyerbacher Road.

Derr was trapped and had to be cut out of the vehicle.

He and two passengers were rushed to St. Mary's where they are all in stable condition.

Two other passengers refused medical treatment.

The accident is under investigation.
