A 46-year-old Auburn woman who was driving a 2019 Chevrolet Traverse and one of her 14-year-old passengers were taken by ambulance to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. Another 14-year-old passenger also suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported to the hospital by helicopter. All three are now in stable condition, according to police.
