BAYSIDE, Queens — At least five people were injured at a Queens high school Friday when a student allegedly tossed bleach during a hallway fight with her classmate, police said.

It happened about 11:30 a.m., between third and fourth periods, at Benjamin N. Cardozo High School, located at 57-00 223rd St. in Bayside, police said.

Two 16-year-old girls were fighting when one of them threw juice at the other, police said. That's when the second girl allegedly threw bleach, which splattered and hit several people who were walking the hallway.

Five people were taken to the hospital, police said, adding that their injuries were not serious.

Juvenile charges are expected against both girls. The student who threw the bleach has been taken into custody.
