HOBART — Five people were taken to hospitals after a two-car crash Friday on U.S. 30 in front of Southlake Mall, police said.

Hobart police found one of the drivers had been ejected after responding to the crash about 11:35 a.m. at U.S. 30 and Mall Entrance C, police Capt. James Gonzales said.

A preliminary investigation showed a 50-year-old driver from Crown Point disregarded a stop light while traveling south from the entrance to a strip mall to the Southlake Mall parking lot.

As the driver crossed the eastbound lanes of U.S. 30, a 33-year-old driver from Lowell hit the first car, police said.
