Three people were taken to the hospital Monday afternoon after a car and a pickup truck collided at the intersection of Robinwood Drive and Academic Boulevard in front of Hagerstown Community College, according to Washington County Sheriff’s Deputy Matthew Bragunier.
Bragunier said the Ford pickup truck traveling northbound on Robinwood Drive was attempting to make a left turn onto Academic Boulevard leading to HCC and the car, a Buick, was heading southbound when the accident occurred at a traffic light.
The deputy is asking for witnesses to come forward because both drivers said they had the green light.
Three people in the Buick, including the driver, were taken to Meritus Medical Center off Robinwood Drive. Their injuries were not life-threatening, Deputy Scott Buskirk said.
Police responded to the accident at 12:33 p.m. Monday, a supervisor for Washington County Emergency Services said.
Traffic was backed up on Robinwood Drive in both directions until 1:45 p.m. Monday, after both vehicles were towed away.
Police did not immediately release the names of the people involved.
The driver was the only person in the pickup truck and he was not injured, the Bragunier said.
Funkstown Volunteer Fire Co. had a firetruck on the scene and a rescue squad from Washington County Special Operations also was there.
