Seven family members were injured, including a woman who is in serious condition, after an SUV flipped twice on I-985 South in Hall County on Thursday morning, authorities said.

Around 6:45 a.m., a 2000 Chevrolet Suburban sustained “a tire failure,” causing it to overturn twice near the Plainview Road bridge, the Hall County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

During the crash, a man and child were ejected from the vehicle, while the driver and four more children remained in the SUV, the release said.

The driver, 26-year-old Demesha Tanner, is in serious condition at Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville.

The 31-year-old man, Kelvin Langston, and three children were also taken to the Gainesville hospital, while two children were taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, the release said. The children’s ages range from 17 months to 9 years old.

A 3-year-old boy, 4-year-old boy and 9-year-old girl have been released from the hospital, while Langston and the 17-month-old girl are stable, the release said.

An investigation is ongoing.
