Two people were taken to the hospital Wednesday morning after an accident in front of Resley Tire Co. at 16611 National Pike west of Hagerstown, Trooper Charles Faith of the Maryland State Police said.

A Geo Metro heading westbound on National Pike (U.S. 40) slid into the back of a Chevy pickup truck heading in the same direction, Faith said.

A passenger in the Metro and the driver of the  pickup truck were taken to Meritus Medical Center, Faith said.

In addition to the Maryland State Police, two firetrucks from the Maugansville Goodwill Volunteer Fire Company were on the scene as well as an ambulance from Williamsport Volunteer Fire and EMS. The Washington County Sheriff's Office was also on the scene assisting the Maryland State Police.

Police responded to the accident around 8:05 a.m. and stopped traffic in both directions. Traffic was able to move again after the vehicles were towed away. The ambulance and firetrucks cleared the scene at 8:30 a.m.
