A man is taken to Good Samaritan Hospital with minor injuries, following an accident in Zanesville.

It happened around 4:30 p.m.

The Police Department says the man was attempting to back out of the driveway at 630 Shaum Avenue, when he struck a red vehicle that was parked along the road. He then proceeded to drive through a yard across the street, at 627 Shaum Avenue, before striking a tree. Officers say the man was not ejected from the vehicle, but they did find him in a creek near the car.

They say alcohol is suspected in the crash.
