By  | 

Two teenagers are recovering after an accident Sunday night in Burleson County.

The accident happened about a mile off Texas 36 west of Lyons.

The Department of Public Safety says Brandon Stepp, 16, and his girlfriend, Kayla White, 18, both of Cypress, had been drinking at Lake Somerville on Sunday before getting behind the wheel of a Ford Expedition.

Authorities say Stepp lost control and flipped the vehicle off FM 60 west of Lyons.

Stepp was ejected and had to be taken by helicopter to Scott and White Hospital in Temple.
Officials will not release his condition because he is a minor.

White's condition is also unknown, but her injuries are not thought to be non life-threatening.

DPS says both will likely face alcohol related charges.
