The Zanesville Police Department is still looking for a driver who fled the scene of an accident earlier this afternoon.

It happened around 5:15 p.m. near the intersection of East and Center drives.

Sergeant Chris Phipps says the driver lost control of the vehicle, went down the hill, and the front end of the car ended in a small stream. He says the driver of the car proceeded to flee the scene on foot, noting there was a set of footprints in the snow.

There were two passengers in the car. Phipps says one was sent to Good Samaritan Hospital with minor injuries.

He says the driver of the car faces failure to control along with hit and skip charges.
