One man is in the hospital after a vehicle accident in Taylor County Friday morning.

Chief Deputy Robert Beltner, of the Taylor County Sheriff's Department, said it happened at the intersection of County Road 13 and Route 76 in Flemington.

A coal truck pulled off of Rt. 76 onto Co. Rd. 13. A van traveling on County Road 13 hit the front of the truck.

The impact threw the van sideways across the road where it hit a guardrail and flipped into the creek onto its roof, according to the sheriff's department.

The driver of the van was transported to United Hospital Center in Bridgeport with minor injuries. The name of the driver is not being released at this time.

The driver of the coal truck is uninjured.
