FORT WALTON BEACH — A man driving a gray van appeared to have suffered a medical emergency and veered off the road and into a tree, narrowly missing a building, authorities say.


The accident happened at 11 Miracle Strip Parkway.


The man suffered minor injuries to his leg, said Chief Battalion Jeremy Morgan of the Fort Walton Beach Fire Department, but had to be cut out of the vehicle.


Prior to hitting the tree, the van clipped a car as it veered toward the building.


The second driver appeared to have no injuries.


The accident is still being investigated.
