ST. GEORGE – A two-car collision blocked part of the intersection of River Road and Riverside Drive in St. George Friday evening, and one man was sent to the hospital as a result of the accident.
At about 6:40 p.m., an SUV traveling northbound on River Road was making a left turn onto westbound Riverside Drive. As the SUV turned, it struck the rear driver’s side portion of a passenger car traveling southbound on River Road, St. George Police Sgt. David Williams said.
The impact caused the passenger car to flip around and face northward. It was rendered immobile by the impact and blocked the westbound lanes of the intersection until it was towed away at about 7:15 p.m. The blocked lanes reopened soon after.
One of the passenger car’s occupants, an adult male, was taken to Dixie Regional Medical Center by ambulance with minor injuries, Williams said.
The driver of the SUV was cited in the incident, Williams said.
