A four car accident in Zanesville sent one man to the hospital Tuesday evening.

The chain reaction accident occurred shortly before 6:00 p.m. on Sharon Avenue. Two vehicles were waiting to turn left into Mother Tuckers gas station, and a Ford Ranger was stopped behind them.  A fourth vehicle, a Dodge Ram pick-up truck, rear-ended the Ranger, pushing it into the two vehicles in front.  The driver of the Ranger was transported by Genesis to Good Samaritan Hospital.  No word on the extent of his injuries at this time.  The driver of the Dodge Ram was cited for failure to maintain an assured cleared distance.  Zanesville Police and Fire responded to the scene as well as Genesis Community Ambulance.
