PERKINS, Oklahoma -

Two OSU student-athletes are in the hospital after crashing on their way home from Cushing on Monday night.

Star wrestler A.J. Ferrari and cross country runner Isai Rodriguez were returning to Stillwater after a youth wrestling practice and crashed along Highway 33 near Perkins around 8 p.m.

OHP Troopers say it happened after Ferrari attempted to pass three cars and hit another vehicle before running off the road and rolling over several times. The car then caught on fire.

Investigators said Rodriguez crawled out of the car, but two men had to help Ferrari out of the car.

According to officials, Ferrari was transported by helicopter to an Oklahoma City hospital while Rodriguez was taken by ambulance.

Both athletes are being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Officials say there were no fatalities or serious injuries to anyone else involved in the crash.
