Wednesday morning's heavy fog likely played a factor in a chain reaction accident, according to the Department of Public Safety.
The accident happened just after 6 a.m. at Highway 6 and FM 2154.
According to DPS, the driver of a Pontiac Vibe ran a stop sign and broadsided a Kia Optima.
The driver of the Pontiac was taken to The College Station Medical Center with minor injuries. The driver of the Kia was not injured.
Because other vehicles tried to avoid the accident, it sparked another accident involving three 18-wheelers, said DPS officials.
No one was injured in that collision and the trucks received little damage.
