    Two teens were injured in a crash while trespassing at Lime Rock Park Racetrack.

    Two teens were rushed to the hospital on Wednesday night after trespassing at a racing track in Salisbury and racing go-carts on the track, according to state police.

    Several juveniles were trespassing at Lime Rock Park around 8:30 p.m. and a 15-year-old-boy and 15-year-old girl collided as they drove go-carts a vendor had brought in for a weekend event, police said.

    The girl sustained head and torso injuries and Lifestar airlifted her to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, where she is in stable condition.

    The 15-year-old boy sustained head and arm injuries and was transported to Sharon Hospital.

    Police said none of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening. Authorities are investigating the case.

    Police said the group of juveniles were on the property and driving the go-carts without permission.

    Emergency personnel from the Falls Village and Lakeville fire departments, along with ambulances from Falls Village and Salisbury responded, along with LifeStar and LifeNet, the medical helicopter service based in Albany, New York, dispatchers said on Wednesday night.
