Three men were injured Monday night when the vehicle they were traveling in crashed into some trees near Bruns Bridge on Mill Hill Road east of St. Clair.
St. Clair emergency personnel working at the scene said two of the men appeared to be injured seriously.
The two men with the more severe injuries had to be extricated from the car, which came to rest in the woods up a steep embankment just east of the bridge.
The accident occurred at about 9 p.m.
The road was closed for about an hour until the victims were transported to area hospitals, at least one by air ambulance to Mercy Hospital St. Louis.
