A vehicle takes out a light pole and flees the scene.

Zanesville Police Lt. Bill Shaw says the vehicle was heading north on Underwood Street at Market Street around midnight when it hit the pole.

Lt. Shaw says they’re now searching for that vehicle which they believe to be full sized due to the size of the tire tracks. They believe the vehicle has front end damage along with damage to its roof from where the light pole fell.

The pole was hit so hard it has wires coming out of the ground, but traffic is getting by with caution. Repairs are expected Wednesday.
