According to Trooper Fowler, the driver, 47-year-old David Thomas Jr. of Zanesville suffered a significant head injury and possible broken ribs. The passenger, 57-year-old Kevin Cain also of Zanesville received unknown injuries. Both were transported to Genesis Good Samaritan Hospital by ambulance.
