Two people were taken to the hospital after an accident involving two vehicles and knocking over two signs in Clear Spring at the intersection of Martin and Cumberland streets, also known as National Pike, Friday afternoon, Deputy Jay Mills of the Washington County Sheriff's Department said.

The accident happened when an F-150 pickup truck heading eastbound on National Pike collided with a Honda Civic heading northbound on Martin Street, causing the Civic to run into and knock over two poles, Mills said. One pole was a street sign, and the other was carrying a green flag that said, "Welcome Clear Spring" with a lamp at the top that was knocked off.

The driver of the Civic and a passenger in the pickup truck were taken to Meritus Medical Center, Mills said. There were two people in the pickup truck and one in the Civic.

Workers from Potomac Edison are out working on the pole that had the lamp knocked off.

Both vehicles were towed away.

National Pike was blocked off from Mill Street, but it reopened after police cleared the scene at 2:25 p.m. Friday.

Police responded to the accident at 1:25 p.m. Friday.
