A fender bender sends two to the hospital.

According to Zanesville Police Department Patrolman Tom Porter two vehicles traveling North-West on State Route 146 – Sharon Avenue turned left onto Marietta Street. The driver of a Mazda 626 slowed down for traffic and was then rear-ended by the driver of a Dodge Durango. Porter said 12 witnesses were in the area.

"There was a car infront of him that turning into here, with his blinker on, he slowed down but the car, the truck , must not have been paying attention because he just slammed into him," said Witness Justin Dunkle. "Hurt the dude in the middle, snapped his neck back pretty good, he’s probably hurt a little bit."

Porter said both drivers were transported to Good Samaritan Hospital with minor injuries.
