14 Injured In Church Van Accident

Fourteen members of an East Texas church were injured when the van they were riding in flipped on Interstate 20.  The accident happened Sunday afternoon at the Highway 42 intersection.

A spokesperson for the Department of Public Safety said the van from Holy Prayer Apostolic Church in Kilgore was headed Eastbound when it apparently left the roadway.  They say the driver overcorrected causing the van to flip four times.

At least two of those onboard were seriously injured.  All were taken to local hospitals.  Troopers believe the wet weather was not a factor.
