SALISBURY — The intersection of Innes and Main streets was blocked Saturday night after a Nissan Maxima collided with two SUVs.
Salisbury Police officers on the scene said the eastbound Maxima rear-ended a Honda Pilot and ricocheted into a white Ford Explorer just after 6:30 p.m.
The Maxima and the Pilot spun across Main Street and hit the side of Pottery 101. Two were taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center, but their injuries were believed to be minor.
One of the vehicles hit a cement flower pot that stood alongside the road, which rolled toward the entrance of Uncle Buck’s and struck a BMW, officers said. A fire hydrant and Buick was also hit at the intersection.
Traffic was diverted on side streets around the intersection for less than an hour.
Officers said no charges had been filed.
