GOODYEAR, AZ (CBS5) -

Eight Perryville prison inmates are OK after the Goodyear city van they were in was rear-ended late Tuesday morning.

The vehicle that hit the van was traveling "at a very low speed," according to Arizona Department of Corrections spokesman Doug Nick.

The driver of the vehicle was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. The inmates, all women, were not hurt.

The inmates aboard the City of Goodyear Department of Transportation van were part of a road crew picking up trash, Nick said.

He said they were probably headed back to the prison when the accident occurred at 870 W. Estrella Pkwy.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.
