The crash was reported in the 2400 block of East Walnut Avenue, near North Clinton Street, shortly before 10:00 PM.
When authorities arrived on scene they located a grey 2010 Hyundai Sonata that had collided with a power pole.
Five occupants from the vehicle were injured as a result of the crash. Each were treated on scene before being transported to area hospitals.
Initial reports indicate the Hyundai was traveling eastbound on East Walnut Avenue at high-speeds when it lost control and struck a street sign before coming to rest against a power pole.
