A three vehicle accident sends one person to the hospital.

Zanesville Police Officer Sandy McElhaney says around 2 p.m. a Dodge truck rear-ended another Dodge truck that in turn hit the back end of a Ford truck in front of Cummins Insurance Agency off the Maysville Pike.

Due to the strong impact, a large toolbox in the bed of the middle truck flew forward and punctured the back window. The driver of that vehicle was transported to Genesis Good Samaritan hospital where he is being treated for injuries which are unknown at this time.

Maysville Pike was temporarily shut down between Eppley Road and Seborn Avenue while the accident was being investigated. Officer McElhaney says the driver who caused the accident will most likely be cited with failure to assure a clear distance ahead.
