Clark reported Malone and another passenger had to be extricated from the vehicle by emergency personnel.
The car was also carrying Megan Cooper, 20, and Ethan Robinson, 21. According to West, Cooper was treated and released and Robinson was listed in critical condition, but was improving.
Malone and Robinson were airlifted to Erlanger, while Cooper was transported to SkyRidge Medical Center.

An investigation into the wreck is ongoing, according to West.
