Five people are sent to Good Samaritan Hospital after a two car accident.

It happened around 5:30 p.m. on State Route  60 near Narrows Road in Dresden.

Zanesville Post Sergeant Jeremy Mendenhall says the black car was attempting to make a left turn onto Narrows road when it struck the blue car traveling south on State Route  60.

"It looks like there’s significant damage. Severe, yeah on the one. The other one looks like it’s damaged pretty good but not severe, " says Mendenhall.

Mendenhall says both drivers and three passengers in the blue car were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

"Obviously, the roads aren’t bad, so this may be a case of just didn’t see them, " says Mendenhall.

State Route 60 remained closed for about two hours until crews were able to clear the scene.
