Five people were hospitalized, two in serious condition, following a crash in Foxborough on Friday night.

One of the victims injured was rookie Patriots linebacker, Harvey Langi.

Fire Captain Tom Preannie tells NBC10 the rear-end crash happened on Route 140 around 9:15 p.m.

One person had to be extricated. That person was taken to Rhode Island Hospital in serious condition.

The other seriously injured victim was brought to Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton. Three others went to Norwood Hospital.

Two others were evaluated at the scene, but not taken to area hospitals.

Three cars were involved in the crash.

The Patriots released a statement saying, "We are aware of the traffic accident involving Harvey Langi and a passenger last night in Foxborough. The two were stopped at a traffic light when they were rear ended by another vehicle. They were both transported to a local hospital with injuries and are receiving medical attention. Our thoughts are with Harvey, the Langi family and those who sustained injuries in last night’s accident.”

An official from Rhode Island Hospital tells NBC 10 Harvey was discharged from the Emergency Department.

Langi has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets with a back injury.

The accident remains under investigation.
