Freezing rain and ice are to blame for several area accidents Sunday afternoon.

Police say a 6-year-old and his 4-year-old brother were hospitalized after their uncle, 26-year-old Joseph Sims of Chandlersville hit a patch of ice on Millers Lane in Zanesville and flipped his Oldsmobile Bravada SUV.

The young boys are said to be okay. They were taken to Genesis Good Samaritan Hospital as a pre-caution.

The State Highway Patrol says Sims will be cited with failure to control.
