Church Van Involved In Accident

A husband and wife remain hospitalized Friday night, following an accident involving a church van near Grand Saline.

The accident happened just after 9 a.m. on Hwy 80 in the Silver Lake community... that's just East of Grand Saline.  The van was carrying a group of people from Harvest Acres Baptist Church to Six Flags when a rear tire apparently blew causing it to flip.  Sixteen people on board were taken to area hospitals. Most were treated for minor cuts and bruises.

The husband and wife are in stable condition at ETMC Tyler.  The husband is recovering from a head injury, the wife has a broken vertebrae.  The rest of those on board were treated and released.
