Three people were seriously injured in a crash early Sunday. It happened at 3:30 a.m. on Southwest Harbor Lane in West Seattle.

Police say at about 3:31 a.m. a 21-year-old male driver was travelling northbound in the 2700 block of Harbor Avenue SW in his maroon 1997 Chrysler Sebring convertible. 

There were three adult passengers in the vehicle, two females and one male.  The driver lost control of his vehicle, struck a tree and overturned.  

Both female passengers were ejected from the vehicle.

Medics transported three of the occupants to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.  The fourth was transported via ambulance for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say officers responded to HMC to evaluate the driver for indications of being under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.  Signs of impairment were detected and a blood draw was performed.  The results of that blood draw are pending laboratory analysis.

An investigation is ongoing.
