ST. GEORGE – Two passenger cars collided at the intersection of State Route 18/Bluff Street and Snow Canyon Parkway/Red Hills Parkway around 8:30 p.m. Monday when the southbound driver made a left-hand turn failing to yield to the oncoming northbound car.
The southbound car was a silver passenger car driven by a 17-year-old with three passengers in his car, one 19-year-old boy and two teenaged girls, St. George Police Sgt. Rich Triplett said.
The northbound car was a white passenger car drive by a woman with her 13-year-old son in the car.
The teen failed to yield to the woman heading northbound as he initiated his left turn onto Red Hills Parkway on a flashing yellow light, Triplett said, and the two collided.
There were no transports, Triplett said, but the mother did self-transport herself and her son to Dixie Regional Medical Center to get checked out for reported minor soreness, bumps and bruises.
The teen was cited for failure to yield and for not having ever obtained a driver’s license.
