The Zanesville Post says alcohol is a factor in a Saturday evening accident that sent one woman to the hospital.

Trooper Williams says around 5 p.m., 21-year-old Joshua Pyle of Chandlersville, was traveling in the 1,900 block of Zane Grey Road, when he went off the right side of the road and struck a tree. His passenger, 22-year-Courtney McGraw of Zanesville, was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Trooper williams says in the driver’s statement, Pyle indicated he swerved to miss a vehicle, but Trooper Williams says he found no corroborating evidence to support that finding. Pyle was cited with failure to control with additional charges pending. The accident remains under investigation.
