HAGERSTOWN — Two people were injured in Hagerstown Wednesday afternoon in a chain-reaction accident off Eastern Boulevard involving three vehicles, including a Washington County Commuter bus, city police said.

The wreck occurred at about 2:30 p.m. when the bus stopped to let a passenger off just past the intersection of Eastern Boulevard and Conrad Court, according to Hagerstown Police Department Officer Timothy Rossiter.

In a chain reaction, a vehicle that was stopped for the bus was struck from behind by another vehicle, police said.

The vehicle that was struck from behind was pushed into the back of the bus, Sgt. Chad Woodring said.

The driver of the bus and the at-fault driver were taken to Meritus Medical Center with minor injuries, according to Rossiter.

About four people were on the bus but they were uninjured, Woodring said.
