An eight-year old boy is sent to Good Samaritan Hospital with minor injuries after an afternoon incident.

It happened around 4 p.m. near 627 Munson Road in Zanesville.

Zanesville Police Department Sergeant Chris Phipps says the boy was chasing a dog that got loose and went out the front door of his home, and he failed to look before running out into the street. Phipps says the driver of the vehicle saw the boy and stopped, but the boy ran into the side of the car.

Phipps says no one will be cited in the incident.
