Belleville police and fire departments have responded to a three-vehicle accident in the 2500 block of West Boulevard near Belleville East High School.

Two people, both high school students, were extricated from a Nissan Maxima. An adult was in the second vehicle, a Chevrolet Silverado. He was examined by medical personnel, but not taken a hospital.

The third vehicle was parked and unoccupied.

The students were taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to Battalion Chief Randy Schield.

He said while they know it was a head-on accident, they are unsure of the cause as of Monday afternoon.

“It’s still under investigation ... It was happening as school was getting out,” said Belleville Master Sgt. Rob Thomason on Monday evening. “We are actively investigating it right now.”
