Deputies told us Brittany Sprunger was driving on Route 50 Saturday with two passengers. She apparently lost control, which flipped the car twice, before colliding into another car head-on. Sarah Thumm was the driver of that car, which had one passenger.
Four of those people have been released from the hospital, and the last one is expected to be released tomorrow.
