All 10 people were ejected from an SUV in which they were riding after it flipped over on eastbound Interstate 16 in North Bryan, according to Bryan County Sheriff's Office Deputy Carroll Clifton.
Around 2:30 p.m. Sunday, a man was driving a GMC Yukon with an adult female and eight children ranging in age from 5-18 when the left rear tire blew out just west of Exit 143. That caused the SUV to veer into the median, then flip over at least four times and end up in the westbound lanes, Clifton said.
Two of the children were flown to Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah, and the other eight people were taken by ambulance to area hospitals.
Sheriff Clyde Smith said Monday that everyone suffered broken bones or bruises. All the children are expected to recovver.
Agencies from several areas, including Bryan, Effingham and Liberty counties, responded. The westbound lanes were shut down west of Exit 143 for about an hour.
