A car crashed into a concrete retaining wall on Stewart Parkway Sunday night.

Two people were taken to the hospital in critical condition Sunday night after their car reportedly crashed into a concrete retaining wall.

The Roseburg Fire Department responded to the crash in the 3000 block of Northwest Stewart Parkway.

Fire officials said a 2003 Infiniti left the road at a high speed and both passengers had to be extricated from the car. Fire department images show a gray sedan with the front end completely crushed in.

The passenger, a 35-year-old Sutherlin man, and the driver, a 29-year-old Oakland man, were later taken to PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend in Springfield and OHSU respectively with serious injuries.

Police didn't release the identity of the passengers. 

The fire department was assisted by Umpqua Valley Ambulance and the Roseburg Police Department.

The case is still under investigation.
