ST. GEORGE – A vehicle rollover on Airport Road in St. George resulted in an hour-long road closure and a transport to the hospital Saturday afternoon.
Sgt. Scott Lemmon of the St. George Police Department said officers responded to a rollover on the hillside portion of Airport Road around 1:15 p.m. Saturday. He said a 21-year-old male driving a black corvette had been speeding down Airport Road and attempted a U-turn. The action spun the vehicle around and flipped it into the opposite lane.
Police closed the road for about an hour following the accident.
The driver was uninjured but the passenger, a 19-year-old female, was transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center with minor injuries. Lemmon said the driver was cited for driving too fast for road conditions and making an illegal U-turn.
The driver had borrowed the Corvette from a friend attending the Dixie Dragz drag racing competition at the old airport grounds, Lemmon said.
