ST. GEORGE — Two separate accidents at about 8 a.m. Wednesday slowed traffic for a short time near 2500 South River Road.
The first accident involved a grey Chrysler PT Cruiser that crashed into the rear of a white Toyota Sienna van, both vehicles were southbound at about 2500 South.
The driver of the Sienna complained of some neck pain, but refused medical transport, St. George Police officer Jamison Hale said.
The Sienna was driven by a woman who was taking her daughter to school and the PT Cruiser was driven by a woman with her two sisters as passengers who were also on their way to school, he said.
The driver of the PT Cruiser was cited for following too close.
A second accident involving three cars also southbound on River Road is believed to have been caused by the slowing traffic from the previous accident, St. George Police Sgt. Sam Despain said. A silver Honda Civic crashed into a white Dodge Intrepid and then a white Mitsubishi Galant then crashed into the rear of the Civic, Despain said.
The white Mitsubishi was towed and the other two cars were driven from the scene. There were no injuries in this accident.
