ST. GEORGE – A woman was hospitalized after a vehicle collision near Vernon Worthen Park in St. George Monday.
At around 2:44 p.m., a woman was driving a Volkswagen Beetle north on 400 East collided with a white GMC pickup truck traveling west on 300 South.
The accident happened because the man driving the pickup truck failed to stop at the intersection, St. George Police Officer Jamison Hale said.
“The driver said he didn’t see the stop sign,” Hale said. “He ran the stop sign and collided with the Volkswagen Bug.”
The truck apparently struck the VW near the front passenger side of the vehicle, causing its airbags to deploy and sending it off the road and several yards into Vernon Worthen Park.
The woman driving the Beetle was injured in the accident and taken by ambulance to Dixie Regional Medical Center. Hale said that he did not have any information about the nature and extent of her injuries.
The driver of the pickup truck was not injured in the accident. Police cited him for running the stop sign.
