    An American Airlines employee was injured Friday when the company van he was driving plunged from the fourth floor of a parking garage at Miami International Airport, authorities said.

    Miami-Dade police said the driver crashed the van through the fourth-floor wall and landed on its roof on the concrete below.

    The incident at the employee parking garage at the airport's maintenance hangar was reported just after 8:15 a.m., Miami Dade Fire Rescue said.

    The driver of the van, identified as 59-year-old Orlando Luna, was taken to a nearby hospital and is listed in good condition. He was the only person inside the vehicle.

    In a statement, American Airlines said the employee sustained minor injuries but was transported to the hospital as a precautionary measure.

    The incident remains under investigation but it's believed to be an accident.
