JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating a single vehicle accident on Philips Highway near Nocatee Parkway.

FHP told Channel 4 a man driving a van traveling northbound on Philips Highway lost control of the vehicle, went over the median and flipped the vehicle.

Investigators said it is unclear why the man lost control of the vehicle. One witness told an FHP officer that they saw the vehicle flip over. 

The driver of the van was transported to Baptist hospital and is expected to be OK.

The southbound lanes of Philips Highway at Nocatee Parkway were closed for about an hour Wednesday night while crews cleared the road.
