A man was taken to the hospital Saturday afternoon after being struck by a car on the Veteran’s Bridge in Zanesville.

Zanesville Police say the blue pick up truck was stopped in the right lane and the driver was outside of the truck when the crash occurred. Judson Rogers and his family had just passed the blue pick up truck on the bridge when they witnessed the crash.

"A truck, a blue truck up on the right and everybody had moved over to go around him safely and this red firebird slammed on the gas and switched into the right lane and it was over just like that," tells Rogers.

Rogers says the driver of the pick up truck was conscious after the being hit by the car. He was taken to the hospital by Community Ambulance. The Zanesville Police and Fire Department responded to the crash.
