BRYAN, Texas — UPDATE: Bryan police reported there were only minor injuries after a rollover crash on Highway 6 that involved an armored truck. The two people in the Brinks truck were taken to the hospital but have since been released.

The crash happened around 11 a.m. Saturday on the 300 block of North Earl Rudder Freeway. Authorities said the Brinks truck was going northbound in the outside lane when a white painter's van came up behind in the same lane. The white van hit the back of the Brinks truck and the Brinks truck rolled onto its side, authorities said. Debris from the white van hit another car but the driver was not hurt.

The driver of the white van was given a ticket for failure to control speed. It took crews about two hours to clear the highway and all lanes have since been reopened.
