HAGERSTOWN — Three vehicles were involved in an accident on Eastern Boulevard at Jefferson Boulevard on Tuesday morning, Deputy M. Thompson of the Washington County Sheriff's Department said.

Nobody was injured.

The accident happened when a Toyota Corolla was heading southbound on Eastern Boulevard and collided with the back of an SUV stopped at a red light at the intersection, according to Thompson. The impact pushed the SUV into the back of another SUV that was stopped at the intersection.

Traffic on Eastern Boulevard southbound was sluggish in the area because the right lane at the intersection with Jefferson Boulevard was blocked off.

All of the vehicles involved were able to be driven from the scene. By 8:35 a.m., traffic was flowing smoothly.

Police responded to the accident at 7:53 a.m. Tuesday, a supervisor for Washington County Emergency Services said.
