Jimenez, who was properly restrained, was uninjured and did not require any on-scene medical attention. 

Five passengers in the van were transported to Beebe Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries and three others were taken to Milford Memorial, also with non-life-threatening injuries.  Two other passengers did not require any medical attention.
