An accident in Newton Township sends three people to the hospital.
It happened around 6pm Tuesday evening on Maysville Pike near Panther Drive. Trooper Eric Williams with the Zanesville Post of the State Highway Patrol says that a silver Saturn driven by 21-year-old Cody Slack of Crooksville crashed into the back of a red Dodge Neon driven by 45-year-old Teressa Debolt of Zanesville.
The two passengers in Slack’s vehicle were uninjured. Teressa Debolt, her husband 49-year-old James Debolt, and 24-year-old Jessica Debolt were all taken to Good Samaritan Hospital.
Trooper Williams says Slack was cited for failure to leave an assured clear distance ahead.
