A vehicle crashed near Five Mile Road and Waikiki Road with four occupants inside of it on Thursday.

Four people were taken to the hospital after their vehicle went off the road and landed upside down in a ditch near Five Mile Road and Waikiki Road around 3 a.m. on Thursday morning.

An initial investigation indicated that the car was speeding east on Five Mile Road when the driver lost control at a curve and crossed over Waikiki, crashing into the ditch. All four occupants are adults, a news release from the sheriff’s office said.

Impairment was a likely factor in the crash, the sheriff’s office said. The crash is still under investigation.

That portion of Waikiki was closed until a little before 9 a.m. Thursday morning.
