SCOTTSDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

A Scottsdale teen is fighting for his life after being pinned underneath a vehicle Saturday night.

It took crews more than an hour to get the 17-year-old out.  The teen was conscious and alert the whole time, said Scottsdale Fire Department spokesman Brian Read. 

The crash happened on Larkspur Drive near 128th Street.

Read said the vehicle flipped over. Two other teens who were also inside managed to free themselves from the wreckage before first responders arrived. They're expected to be OK.

Read said police are still investigation the cause of the crash. He said it's not known yet if alcohol was involved.
