A motorist blamed a stuck accelerator with causing a five-vehicle crash in the 500 block of West King Street Tuesday night.

A Ford Taurus station wagon struck several moving vehicles, sheared off a telephone pole and came to a stop against the front of two homes, city police Chief Keith Sadler said in a press release. The driver said his accelerator had become stuck.

It happened between Pine and Mary streets at 9:15 p.m.

Lancaster police Sgt. Jeff Haas said medical personnel responded for two people with injuries. A third person was also injured. All injuries were minor, police said.

The two houses had only minor damage. Police are still investigating.

Debris from the wreckage was strewn from the 600 block of the eastbound thoroughfare into the 500 block.

West King Street was closed at Coral Street for about 90 minutes.
