Two passengers, a 17-year-old Bellefontaine boy and a 15-year-old Bellefontaine boy, had minor injuries. They were not transported.
No one was wearing their seat belt.
The State Highway Patrol did not release any names because the driver and passengers are juveniles.
The driver was cited for failure to control.
He told troopers that he swerved to avoid a dog in the road.
The Sunfire suffered heavy damage.
Bellefontaine Fire and EMS assisted at the scene.
