A rollover crash in Springfield Township Wednesday evening sends one man to the hospital with serious injuries.

According to Trooper Stephen Williams with the Zanesville Post of the State Highway Patrol, shortly after 8 p.m. residents on Shiplett Road heard a loud crash.

When they went outside they saw a white GMC Sierra pick-up truck had lost control and was on its roof in front of 1070 Shiplett.

Trooper Williams says the driver was taken to Genesis Good Samaritan Hospital with no feeling in his lower extremities. The Highway Patrol identifies the driver as 35-year-old Clay Cox of Zanesville. He’s currently at Grant Medical Center in Columbus where he’s listed in serious condition.

Williams says they believe alcohol and speed were factors in the crash.

The accident remains under investigation by the Highway Patrol.
