ALAMEDA (CBS SF) — Six teens were injured—one critically—when their car crashed into a tree in Alameda early Friday morning, police said.

The crash was reported at 1:36 a.m. in the 800 block of Island Drive.

The 15-year-old driving the car was taken to Highland Hospital with injuries that are considered life-threatening, according to police.

The car’s five passengers, four other 15-year-olds and a 13-year-old, were also hospitalized but are expected to survive, police said.

According to a preliminary investigation, the car belongs to one of the passengers’ parents and was used without permission, according to police.
