HAGERSTOWN -- No one was injured Thursday afternoon when a car drove onto a sidewalk in the 100 block of Buena Vista Avenue in Hagerstown.

The accident occurred about 1:45 p.m. when a southbound Volvo sedan swerved in an attempt to miss a Chevrolet pickup truck that was stopped in the street, Hagerstown Police Officer Ryan Wertz said.

The Volvo struck the rear of the pickup, traveled across the road and came to rest on the sidewalk in front of a duplex at 108-110 Buena Vista Ave.

Wertz said the impact pushed the pickup into a Washington County Community Action Council transit vehicle that was parked along a curb.

The transit vehicle appeared to have minor damage, said David Jordan, executive director of the Community Action Council.

The car and pickup were towed from the scene.
