An accident sent multiple people to the hospital and shut down part of Maple Avenue Tuesday night.

Sargeant Chris Phipps of the Zanesville Police Department says the accident occurred around 5:30 p.m. when a red Chevy Cavalier was attempting to turn left from Cambridge Avenue to Maple Avenue. The Cavalier struck a grey Jeep Grand Cherokee heading northbound on Maple Avenue; blocking both lanes of northbound traffic. The lanes were closed for about 15 minutes while crews worked to clear the scene.

Phipps says the driver of the red Cavalier will be cited with failure to yield.
