Two Lawton men are in the hospital after running off the road near Elgin late Monday night.

James Bass, 26, was driving a 2002 Chevy truck when police say he over corrected going at a high rate of speed. That's when officers say Bass' truck rolled an undetermined amount of times. Bass was taken to Comanche County Memorial Hospital and admitted in fair condition with head and trunk injuries.

Riding with Bass was 25-year-old Christopher Young. Young was taken to the same hospital in serious condition with head and trunk injuries.

According to the report, Bass was partially ejected from the driver's window while Young was ejected from the back glass for an unknown distance. Neither man was wearing a seat belt.
