JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A Hinds County transport van was involved in a crash Tuesday afternoon.

The crash happened on I-55 near Pearl Street.

Officials say the van was pulled over on the left shoulder with their hazard lights on because of a flat tire. The van was rear ended by a car that was in the left lane.

The driver of the car said that all of a sudden traffic ahead of them stopped and they darted over to the shoulder, but didn’t know that the van was stopped there.

They tried to go back into their lane but hit the rear passenger side of the van.

Both drivers went to local hospitals to get checked out.
