FLORENCE, AZ (CBS5) -

Four people were hurt after the driver of the vehicle they were riding in lost control, rolled and crashed, Pinal County sheriff's deputies said.

None of the occupants were wearing seatbelts, the Pinal County Sheriff's Office said.

It was later determined the 13-year-old boy had a .102 blood alcohol level, sheriff's investigators said.

The rollover happened on New Year's Day at 6:35 p.m. in the area of Hidden Valley and Fulcar roads outside Maricopa.

The driver of the vehicle was identified as Andrew Homer, 21, of the Ak-Chin Reservation. Besides the 13-year-old boy, his passengers were Jordan Lopez, 22, and Hector Medrano, 19, all from the Ak-Chin Reservation.

Deputies said all of the occupants had been drinking beer earlier in the day. Homer told investigators they had just left the Farmers Market after buying more beer. He was traveling 45 to 50 mph when he lost control of the vehicle, PCSO said. 

Homer was taken by ground ambulance and the other three were airlifted to local hospitals for their injuries. One of the passenger's injuries are considered critical, another serious and Homer and the 13-year-old received minor injuries.

Homer was driving with a suspended license, PCSO said. He faces several charges, including  aggravated assault, endangerment, aggravated DUI and providing alcohol to a minor.
