Firefighters worked to free three people from a white four-door Pontiac after a two-vehicle crash Friday night at the intersection of West Washington and Jonathan streets in Hagerstown, according to city police.
The Pontiac came to rest on the sidewalk facing the opposite way on West Washington Street against a pole with damage to the driver’s side door.
The other vehicle — a white Chrysler passenger car being driven by a sole occupant, a Hagerstown police officer said — displayed heavy front end damage and was leaking fluids onto the pavement after emergency personnel arrived.
The extent of injuries of the people involved wasn’t immediately clear from police at the scene.
Two Community Rescue Service medic units had been dispatched to the scene, according to a Washington County Emergency Services supervisor said.
The call for the accident went out at 10:42 p.m., the supervisor said.
Fire police had traffic blocked off Jonathan Street at West Antietam Street and West Washington Street blocked at South Prospect Street while police, fire and medic units attended to the incident.
Further information was not yet available late Friday night.
