Two people were pinned in a vehicle following an accident Thursday evening on U.S. 40 in Zanesville.

According to Trooper Jeff Fowler with the Zanesville Post of the State Highway Patrol, around 5 p.m. Roy Patterson of Marne was driving a red Pontiac when he attempted to turn onto National Road. Patterson turned in front of a green Saturn driven by Jean Maxwell of Zanesville and was struck.

The collision sent Maxwell's car off the roadway, hitting a sign and utility pole.

"Two occupants in the Saturn were pinned in the car. They had to be extracted by EMS. No injuries are life-threatening," says Trooper Fowler.

Fowler says Patterson received a citation for failure to yield.
