A two-car accident in Vineyard Haven resulted in one person being taken to the hospital and shut down part of Franklin Street on Thursday morning. One driver was taken to Martha’s Vineyard Hospital, though the driver’s condition was not known by police officers on the scene.

According to Tisbury Police Lt. Eerik Meisner, a white Honda pickup was taking a right onto Franklin from Center St. as a black Volkswagen was heading north on Franklin, and clipped the corner of the black car.

A woman and infant were being treated by Oak Bluffs EMTs on the sidewalk. The driver was shaken but in good condition.
