Former U.N. ambassador Andrew Young was taken to a hospital Monday afternoon as a precaution after a cement truck overturned on a car he was riding in, authorities said.

Young, 83, was first treated at roadside by emergency crews after Monday’s accident, Atlanta police spokesman Sgt. Greg Lyon said. Young was in one of two vehicles the truck fell on and he had some minor injuries, Lyon said.

Young, who wasn’t driving, was able to walk away from the accident in the city where he had served as a mayor in the 1980s, according to Kelly Jackson, a spokeswoman with the Andrew J. Young Foundation, Inc.
