BUCKEYE, Ariz. (AP) - Three Arizona Department of Corrections employees going to work were critically injured and four others also were hurt when their van overturned in a traffic accident in Buckeye.

Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves says the DOC van rolled on its side when struck by a pickup truck which ran a stop sign at an intersection Monday night.

Graves says three of the workers were reported in critical or extremely critical conditions while injuries to the other four were less serious. The Department of Corrections says those four were released after treatment.

The pickup’s driver wasn’t hurt, and Graves says there’s no indication she was impaired.

The accident occurred on State Route 85 as the DOC workers were going to work at the Lewis prison complex in Buckeye.
