Maryland driver sets off minor chain-reaction accident at Upper Milford intersection, troopers report.

A Maryland driver braked too late to avoid creating a minor chain-reaction accident recently at an Upper Milford Township intersection, according to police.

The crash involved three vehicles and slightly injured a Zionsville man, according to state police at Fogelsville.

Two vehicles were stopped southbound on Chestnut Street at Buckeye Road at 5:16 p.m. Jan. 17, police said. A car driven by Efrain A. Alvarenga, 27, of Riverdale, Md., noted the stopped vehicles too late. Although she braked, she was unable to avoid striking one car, which was pushed into the other.

The car she hit was driven by Shawn P. Merrill, 41, of Zionsville, police said. His car was pushed into a pickup truck driven by Stephanie J. Sheaffer, 17, of Alburtis.

All vehicles were able to be driven to the side of the road, police said.

They said that Merrill was transported for medical treatment of a minor injury.

Alvarenga was cited for following too closely, police said.
