WOODBRIDGE, New Jersey - A commuter-type van flipped onto its side in New Jersey Thursday morning, sending several people to the hospital.

Around 8:30 a.m., the van was in the left lane of the northbound Garden State Parkway in Woodbridge, closing two northbound lanes. It was removed about an hour later.

Seven people were taken to area hospitals. None of the injuries was serious.

The van veered into the grass area and overturned in the left lane. It is the kind of van bus used for transporting groups of people.

A spokesman for John F. Kennedy Medical Center in Edison confirmed the hospital was treating four victims, three women and one man. A spokesperson for Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in Rahway said it is treating two patients from the wreck.
