A two-car accident on Maple Avenue backs-up traffic for about an hour.

It happened around 6 p.m. in front of Arby’s.

Zanesville Post Trooper Williams says the driver of the Chevy Cavalier was traveling north on Maple Avenue and got in the turning lane to make a left hand turn into the Country Fair Shopping Center. When she went to turn, he says she pulled in front of a trunk that was traveling south. The impact spun the Chevy Cavalier, and it struck the curb in front of Arby’s before coming to a rest in the northbound driving lane.

The driver in the car was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital. The driver of the truck and his passenger were not injured.

Trooper Williams says it’s likely the woman will be cited for failure to control.
