ST. GEORGE – A truck crashed through a brick wall near the intersection of Hidden Valley Drive and Price Hills Drive in St. George Thursday night leaving all involved shaken, yet without serious injury.
St. George Police Sgt. Sam Despain said a late model pickup truck was traveling on Hidden Valley Drive when the driver somehow became distracted, causing the truck to crash into a brick wall on the south side of the road. The crash was reported to the St. George Communications Center at 11:45 p.m.
Despain said there were four occupants in the truck including the driver, all of whom he described as teens. While they were shaken up by the crash and sustained some cuts and bruises, he said none of them required transport to the hospital.
Speed is considered to be one of the factors involved in the crash, Despain said. He was unable to confirm the nature of distraction that led to the truck turning into a last-minute bulldozer.
The truck was totaled and had to be towed from the location. No other vehicles were involved in the incident and there were no corollary injuries to anyone.
