LYNN — An accident Tuesday afternoon on the Lynnway left a 46-year-old Cambridge man who was waiting for a bus with a serious leg injury, according to reports.

Police Lt. Michael Kmiec said initial reports from responding officers indicated a vehicle pulling out of the lot at 777 Lynnway struck, or was struck, by a vehicle traveling on the road. The vehicle that was struck was shoved back by the impact, hitting a third vehicle. One of the two vehicles, Kmiec said, struck the man waiting for the bus, and who sustained minor injuries. He was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital at about 1:45 p.m., Kmiec said.

State Police spokesman David Procopio said the three vehicles involved in the crash included a 2019 Nissan Altima driven by a 24-year-old Revere man; a 2015 Hyundai Sonata, driven by a 72-year-old Danvers man with a 70-year-old Danvers woman as a passenger; and a 2000 Chevrolet Impala driven by a 23-year-old Ashland man.

The Danvers man was taken to Salem Hospital with possible injuries, but all other vehicle occupants had no apparent injuries, Procopio said.

Allisa King of Lynn said she saw the accident’s aftermath and said the man waiting for a bus appeared to have sustained a leg injury.

Phil, the 23-year-old involved in the crash who declined to give his last name, said he was stopped at a red light near the Pride Hyundai dealership when he was struck.

“I was sitting at the red light and the next thing you know, two cars hit me from behind,” he said. “I look up and the next you know, I’m getting pushed by the two cars.”

He said the Impala he was driving was totaled.

“It kind of (stinks). Now I have to get a car,” he added.

The crash backed up Lynnway traffic but the scene was cleared within the hour. The crash is under investigation.
