Four people, including three students, were hospitalized after being T-boned by an oncoming vehicle on the way to school in Fort Worth early Friday, officials said.
Police got a call about 7:30 from the Fort Worth Can Academy Westcreek at 6620 Westcreek Drive where a carful of four people turned and was struck by an oncoming vehicle. The driver was ejected and pinned underneath the car, police said.
Two of the occupants were hospitalized in critical condition, one was in serious condition and one had minor injuries, said Matt Zavadsky, MedStar spokesman.
Three of them were taken to John Peter Smith Hospital and one was taken to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital, authorities said.
Police said the ages were unknown but that they were possibly teenagers.
Ku-masi Lewis, principal of the Fort Worth Can Academy Westcreek, said in a statement that three of the injured were students at the school.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with those injured and with the family and friends of all who are involved,” the statement said. “Our focus at this time is to care for our students and make sure they are receiving any counseling resources and care needed.”
