HAGERSTOWN — A person who was being taken to the hospital in a private car made the rest of the trip in an ambulance following an accident at the intersection of Robinwood/Edgewood Drive and Mount Aetna Road on Tuesday morning, Deputy 1st Class Bryan Teets of the Washington County Sheriff's Office said.

The accident happened at about 7:20 a.m. when a Hyundai turned left from northbound Edgewood Drive onto westbound Mount Aetna Road in front of a Sebring that was southbound on Robinwood Drive, Teets said.

The cars collided and hit the southwest corner of the intersection.

Edgewood Drive turns into Robinwood Drive north of Mount Aetna Road.

The Hyundai was taking a passenger to Meritus Medical Center at the time of the crash, Teets said.

After the accident, the passenger was taken to the hospital by a Hagerstown Community Rescue Service ambulance, Teets said.

He did not release the names of the people involved in the accident.

Police blocked off Robinwood Drive from Mount Aetna Road eastbound until 7:37 a.m., after the passenger in the Hyundai was taken to the hospital.

The middle lanes of Robinwood Drive southbound and Mount Aetna Road eastbound were then blocked off until  8:22 a.m., when the cars were towed away and police cleared the scene.

Washington County sheriff's deputies and Maryland State Police were at the scene, as was a firetruck from the Funkstown Volunteer Fire Co.
