BRISTOL, Conn. (WTNH)– Four people were taken to the hospital, including a pregnant woman, after a van crashed into a septic tank truck in Bristol Thursday morning.

Police say a transport van for Community Resources Inc., a facility for persons with disabilities, was traveling east on Waterbury Road when it drove into the back of an unoccupied Bristol-Terryville Septic tank truck that was parked along the curb line.

The crash trapped the driver and three passengers in the van until they were extricated by the Bristol Fire Department. The driver, 24-year-old Kasiana Goodman, of Waterbuy, suffered a head contusion and is currently pregnant. She was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital for treatment.

Two passengers, Scott Duello and Jonathan Meckenna, suffered head, neck, and back injuries and were both transported to the hospital.  Another passenger, 42-year-old Michael Parenty, was also taken to St.Mary’s for no apparent injuries. Their current conditions are unknown at this time.

The van sustained heavy front end damage and there is no word on the cause of the crash. The incident is under investigation.
