The Muskingum County Sheriff's Office says an accident around 5 p.m. has shut down the west bound lanes of U.S. 22 from K-Mart to the Woodbury Apartments.
Our reporter on the scene indicates the accident was between a silver Chevy truck and black GMC Jimmy. They are using the Jaws-of-Life to cut open the truck. Both adults and children were involved in the accident. At least six people were injured, one of which was taken to the hospital by Med-Flight.
The Sheriff's Office is asking people to avoid the area.
