2 Car Accident on West Pike

A Chevy truck is badly damaged after a two vehicle accident on the West Pike in Zanesville.

It happened around 12:20 p.m. right outside the Starfire Gas Station.

Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper Wes Archer says Jorge Preciado and passenger-Giovanni Ortuno-both from Nevada, were turning out of the gas station when they struck a Ford truck, driven by Derek Watiker. Watiker was traveling west in the left lane.

No one was injured in the accident, but it left a mess in the roadway. Both westbound lanes of the West Pike were closed for about 45 minutes while crews cleaned up debris, oil, and anti-freeze.

Preciado was cited for failing to yield from a private driveway.
