SPRING HILL, Tenn. - Four people were seriously hurt in a single car crash in Maury County Monday. One of the victims hurt was a 5-year-old boy. Three of the victims were not wearing safety belts. 

Officials from the Tennessee Department of Safety said 23-year-old Erin Thoni was driving a Saturn Ion southbound on Joe Peay Road in Spring Hill when it veered off the left side of the road just before 6 p.m. The car went down a four-foot embankment and struck a tree.

Five people were inside the car, including a 9-year-old and 5-year-old boy. Four of those, including one of the children, were transported by ground to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with serious injuries.

The boy who was injured was not secured in a seat belt or child seat. Thoni and another passenger, 25-year-old Jamar Foster, were also not wearing seat belts.

One of those injured, 29-year-old Amanda Knight, was wearing her seatbelt.

It was not clear what caused the car to drive off the road. Police initially said they believed rain may have played a factor in the crash.

Investigators said they expected to file charges in the incident.
