Troopers say Talbott failed to negotiate a curve, went off the west side of the road, struck a sign, and overturned.

Talbott and a passenger, 20-year-old Javen T. Banks, suffered serious injuries.

A second passenger, 21-year-old Jyzzaiyah L. Bagsby, suffered moderate injuries.

All three sought treatment at Mosaic Life Care in Saint Joseph.

Authorities say Banks did not wear a seat belt at the time of the crash.

Following the crash, troopers arrested Talbott on a preliminary charge of driving while intoxicated via drugs.
