A woman and four children were transported to the hospital after a van crashed into an apartment building in Walterboro. 

The Colleton County Fire and Rescue Department says a minivan ran into a building at the Lincoln Apartments on 404 Witsell Street Sunday afternoon. 

Responding emergency crews say they received a report of a woman and children trapped in the van. 

"Walterboro Police Officers arrived quickly and determined no one was trapped," CCFR officials said. 

According to authorities, the van received moderate damage, but the building had fairly heavy damage to at least one lower unit and the apartment above it. 

"A brick veneer wall fell on the van, littering the vehicle and parking lot with bricks," CCFR officials said. 

Authorities say all of the children were under the age of four and all injuries were non-life threatening. 

The Walterboro Police Deptartment is investigating the accident.
