WINNECONNE, Wis. (AP) -- A van transporting a Milwaukee County inmate to the Stanley prison has slipped off a highway and overturned, injuring two people.

Winnebago County sheriff's officials say the van slid off Highway 45 near Winneconne Tuesday morning.

Milwaukee County sheriff's authorities say the inmate, being taken to the Stanley Correctional Institution, was injured as well as the driver of the van, a contract security officer. A second officer in the van was not hurt. But, all three were taken to a hospital in Oshkosh.

The van driver suffered head and back pain and the inmate complained of leg pain.
