ST. GEORGE – A three-car accident on River Road at approximately 7 p.m. on Wednesday served as yet another reminder of the increasing complexities of traffic on St. George’s major roads.
The accident occurred at 1050 South River Road. Two vehicles were stopped at the traffic light. The driver of the third vehicle failed to stop and struck the second vehicle from behind, pushing it into the first vehicle.
No injuries were reported.
River Road experiences heavy traffic flow daily and is one of St. George’s most populated and, therefore, one of those most susceptible to collisions, along with Bluff Street, St. George Boulevard and 1000 East.
Officer Derek Lewis, public information officer for the St. George Police Department, said that drivers need to pay attention at all times, regardless of whether they are traveling on a busy route or not.
“Be aware is what traffic is doing around (you,)” he said.
