A family of four was taken to the hospital with injuries after their vehicle flipped over a steep embankment into a creek in Lawrenceburg, police say.

Richard and Ashley Lancaster, along with their two children, were traveling from their home in Alabama to attend a funeral Saturday morning around 5 a.m.

The family's four-year-old was taken by helicopter to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. The mother was also admitted to the hospital with foot and ankle injuries.

The other two passengers, the father and a seven-year-old boy were treated and released from the local hospital.

At this time authorities believe the driver fell asleep at the wheel.
