Van Crashes Into Apartment Complex

Some Lufkin residents got a rude awakening Wednesday morning when a van crashed into their apartment complex.

The crash happened just before 9:00 a.m. at Hidden Oaks II off Tulane Drive in Lufkin. A man was driving the van when he went off the road and hit the building. The van ended up inside the apartment complex.

Lufkin police officer David Porter said, "On arrival, we determined that the individual that was the driver, his foot slipped off the brake. He is a dialysis patient and they've taken him to the hospital to check him out. His injuries do not appear to be serious at this time."

The driver of the van is expected to be okay. None of the tenants were hurt.
