VERMILLION COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A traffic stop in Vermillion County last week led to the arrest of 13 teenagers.

It happened early Saturday morning near Clinton, Indiana.

According to police, they stopped two suspicious vehicles headed to an alleged underage drinking party.

Officers learned someone from the party had fallen off a 60-foot embankment and was holding onto the edge of a cliff, with party goes reportedly saying she had been drinking.

Officers say she was there for at least 30 minutes.

According to police, the other partygoers left the girl there 'with no concern for her safety.'

The girl was airlifted to an Indianapolis hospital for alcohol poisoning and for her injuries.
