A man is injured Friday morning after being struck by a van in a Lehighton gas station parking lot. 

It happened around 10:30 a.m. at the Sunoco along Route 443. Sources on scene say the man is a store manger at a nearby shop who stepped out to grab a cup of coffee. As he walked through the lot, the van driver backed up, hitting the man. 

He was treated on scene for a head injury before being transported to a trauma center. Lehighton police are investigating.
