FORT WORTH _ Four people suffered non life-threatening injuries Friday in a collision between a Parkview Care Center van and a car in southeast Fort Worth, officials said.

The collision occurred shortly after noon at 4500 Mitchell Blvd.

Tracey Knight, a Fort Worth police spokesman, said the van had been stopped at a red light when it was rear-ended by the car, causing the van to overturn.

Matt Zavadsky, a MedStar spokesman, said the driver of the car, a teen male, was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital with an arm injury believed to be non-life threatening. He said the teen had initially been unresponsive on the scene but regained consciousness and stabilized.

An elderly man in the nursing home van was also taken to JPS with minor injuries, Zavadsky said.

Two Parkview staff members, who had also been on the van, complained of minor injuries but refused transport by ambulance to the hospital, Zavadsky said

Knight said the two went to the hospital by private car.
