LEBANON, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities say alcohol may have been a factor in a crash in the Town of Lebanon that sent five people to area hospitals.

The Dodge County Sheriff's Department says the crash happened early Sunday, on Evergreen Road.

The 47-year-old driver apparently lost control and the Ford Explorer went into a ditch and rolled. The driver was uninjured, but his five passengers, ages 37 to 49, all were taken to area hospitals by ambulance.

Sheriff's officials are still investigating.
