Three people were taken to the hospital Tuesday morning following a wreck at the intersection of Oak Ridge Drive and Sharpsburg Pike (Md. 65), Trooper Dave Thompson of the Maryland State Police said.

The accident happened when a Chrysler Town & Country minivan and a Mitsubishi sedan collided  in the intersection, Thompson said.

Both vehicles were facing the curb at the northeast corner of the intersection with damaged front ends.

The driver and two children in the Chrysler Town & Country minivan were taken to Meritus Medical Center off Robinwood Drive with what were believed to be minor injuries, Thompson said.

Police responded to the accident at 6:35 a.m. Tuesday and began directing traffic on westbound Oak Ridge Drive east of Sharpsburg Pike.

Two firetrucks from the Funkstown Volunteer Fire Co. were on the scene with Maryland State Police.

The road reopened and police cleared the scene at 7:22 a.m. after the vehicles were towed away.
