Eleven people were injured and at least two are in critical condition after a rollover crash in Umatilla County.

Two of the passengers were airlifted from the scene via LifeFlight. They are in critical condition.

Two others were transported to Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland and the rest were taken to Good Shepherd in Hermiston.
