ST. GEORGE – Saturday evening a single car accident was reported at Dickey’s restaurant in the Bloomington area of St. George. The vehicle, a Lexus, was carrying the driver and a second passenger, and accelerated toward the building fast enough to hop the curb and crash through a large glass window before coming to rest completely inside the restaurant.
At the time of the accident, approximately 8-10 people were eating at the restaurant, and at least one was transported to the hospital for injuries.
“I heard a big sound in the lobby,” Max Hadler, a Dickey’s employee and eye witness to the accident said, “As I looked up I saw the front wall cave in, and just a bunch of customers getting hit.”
Neither the driver nor the passenger sustained significant injury, and both declined commenting on the accident.
The driver was cited for the collision. Additionally, the vehicle was significantly damaged, and towed for repairs.
