MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Two people were flown to the hospital after a serious crash in Cumberland County Sunday night.

It happened along the 2400-block of Lambs Gap Road in Hampden Township at around 8:50 p.m.

First responders said a car driving up the mountain lost control while navigating a curve, went off the road, hit a tree and flipped.

The man and woman inside were both trapped until rescuers could get to them. They were Life Lioned to Penn State Hershey Medical Center.

Hampden Township assistant fire chief Jerry Orzog told abc27 it's unclear why the car lost control, but said his department is often called to this stretch of road.

"I've been here at Hampden Township for 10 years and it's at least once a year we get a call on the mountain here," he said. "Some are more complicated than others. This is more complicated because of the nature of the extrication and the injuries involved."

The crash victims identities have not been released, but both are expected to survive.
