A bride and groom's special day spirals out of control, sending three people to the hospital, one of them the bride, and landing another man in jail. 

It happened Saturday night at the Clinton County Fairgrounds in Dewitt, just after 10pm. 

The couple's wedding reception was happening at a reception hall on the grounds when a fight broke out. 

Police and witnesses say the bride and some of her family members are among those injured. 

Wedding guests say a fight broke out and in the confusion people tried to leave, when a car hit two people, one of them the bride.     

Three people were injured, one from the fight and two from the car accident.  

All three were transported to the hospital and one had to be airlifted out. 

Police arrested Michael Postell of Dewitt, charging him with public intoxication and serious assault in connection with the fight. Police say he was a guest at that wedding reception.     

Authorities say the three injured were taken to Genesis Hospitals in Dewitt. No word on their conditions.  

At this point, police say there are no additional charges are pending in this case.
