A 15-year-old girl was air­lifted to hos­pi­tal in Hal­i­fax with lifethreat­en­ing in­juries early Satur­day, and four other young peo­ple suf­fered mi­nor in­juries when a car rolled near Broughton Road and Hornes Road, out­side Syd­ney.

There were two men, ages 21 and 24, a woman, 21, and two girls, both 15, in the 2015 Mit­subishi Lancer.

Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Po­lice haven’t re­leased the names of any of the peo­ple in­volved in the crash. Po­lice would only say they are from the Syd­ney and Point Aconi ar­eas.

In a news re­lease, po­lice said the 21-year-old man was driv­ing the car when it rolled over shortly be­fore mid­night.

The re­gional po­lice’s traf­fic safety unit has seized the ve­hi­cle for in­spec­tion.

On Sun­day, re­gional po­lice Staff Sgt. Ken O’Neill said the 15year-old girl re­mains in se­ri­ous con­di­tion in hos­pi­tal and the crash is still un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
