The driver ran from the scene after the crash and was not in custody as of late Thursday night.

The two construction workers were treated and released on the scene, as was one of the passengers of the vehicle. Three other passengers -- two females and one male -- were taken to hospitals for treatment of nonlife-threatening injuries.

Bond said the female passengers are cooperating with investigators and have identified the male driver who fled the scene.
