A vehicle accident sent two to the hospital after a 13-year-old driver slammed a vehicle into a tree in Hinesville, police said. 

The accident occurred shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday at the Eagle Creek Mobile Home Park on Brantley Drive.

Hinesville Police Traffic Accident Investigator Les Patton said the male teen was driving a 2006 Cadillac on one of the roads in the mobile home park. Patton said that, according to a witness, the boy was driving between 20 and 30 mph and, without stopping, drove straight into a parked vehicle, damaging the left rear and continuing on until it struck a tree.

A passenger in the car has been identified as Logan Kennedy, 20, the husband of a Fort Stewart soldier, HPD shift commander Mike Gosseck said. Kennedy underwent surgery for the injuries to his legs at Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah, Gosseck said, adding that the vehicle belonged to Kennedy's brother and he was borrowing it at the time of the accident.

The teen had a bump on his head the size of a golf ball and was transported to Liberty Regional Medical Center. 

The teen also drove through a small fence, Patton said.
