Oxford Assistant Fire Chief Ben Stewart said the driver lost control of the car and ran into a tree on Bynum Cutoff Road at 6:30 a.m. Emergency personnel removed both victims from the crashed car and drove them to a Lifesaver helicopter, which flew them to Birmingham, Stewart said.
Oxford police and fire officials said they could provide no further information about the victims Sunday afternoon.
