A truck went onto the sidewalk and knocked over a street light on Summit Avenue in front of The Herald-Mail building Thursday afternoon, Officer Scott Leeney of the Hagerstown Police Department said. Nobody was injured.

The accident happened when the truck's brakes were not working, and to avoid hitting the vehicle in front of it, the driver of the truck drove onto the sidewalk, hitting the light, Leeney said.

Police were directing traffic going down Summit Avenue into The Herald-Mail parking lot Thursday afternoon at 3:35 p.m.
 
The accident was reported at 3:18 p.m., Leeney said. Summit Avenue reopened at 4:15 p.m.
