One woman has been sent to the hospital after an accident in downtown Charleston.

Charleston police said an active-duty member of the U.S. Air Force was driving on Virginia Street when he collided with another car on Leon Sullivan Way.

Police said the man was messing with his GPS before the collision, causing him to run through a stoplight.

A woman in the other vehicle was sent to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to officers.

The active-duty member was driving to Fayetteville, N.C., from Las Vegas, in the process of transferring military bases.
