A father and son who work for a painting company said they were driving down Highway 59 around 8:15 when a vehicle hit their van. The son said he believes the same vehicle also hit the semi.

The son said he, his father and the semi driver are all okay. They are really shaken up.

Stafford Police say it was an injury accident. No word on who was hurt.
