Thirteen people were injured when a passenger van was struck by a car in Philadelphia's Holmesburg section Wednesday morning.

The accident happened shortly after 5:00 a.m. at the intersection of Torresdale Avenue and Rhawn Street.

Police say 12 workers were in the van when a woman slammed her car into the vehicle, sending the van onto its side.

The occupants of the van and the driver of the car were all hurt, but so far those injuries appear to be non-life threatening.

The female driver of the car was arrested for DUI.

Police are investigating.
