HAGERSTOWN, Md. — Maryland State Police is investigating a multi-vehicle crash that left at least six people injured in Washington County.

On Friday, at around 11:30 a.m., troopers from the Hagerstown Barrack arrived to eastbound I-70, between MD 65 and MD 632, for a report of a serious multi-vehicle crash with entrapments.

According to the preliminary investigation, traffic had slowed or stopped for a construction crew that was repairing potholes when an empty passenger bus failed to stop in time and crashed into parked traffic. The incident involved three commercial vehicles and five passenger vehicles.

One victim was flown to the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center for treatment and all other patients were taken by ambulance to Meritus Medical Center in Hagerstown for treatment of their injuries.

There are no fatalities to report at this time, but this investigation is ongoing.
