CHICAGO | Six people, including five Bishop Noll Institute students, were injured in a three-car crash Sunday night in Chicago's Hegewisch neighborhood.

A Chevrolet Lumina was heading west in the 2600 block of East 130th Street at 7:55 p.m. when it swerved into eastbound traffic, Chicago police said. The Lumina hit the rear driver's side of a trailer being pulled by a Volvo truck and then collided head-on with a Chevrolet Impala carrying five teenagers, police said.

The driver of the Lumina, a 29-year-old man, and a passenger in the Impala, a 16-year-old boy, were taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn with serious injuries, police said.

Four other teens, including the driver of the Impala and three of his passengers, were taken to hospitals in good condition, police said.

Paul Mullaney, president of Bishop Noll Institute, said in a statement Monday that five students were involved in a crash Sunday.

"As a tight-knit family at Bishop Noll, we are focused on showing support to those injured and praying that they all will experience a full recovery," Mullaney said.
