ST. GEORGE — A juvenile crashed his car through a stucco wall Thursday evening after he lost control while allegedly speeding on Hidden Valley Drive in St. George, causing more than $1,000 worth of damage.

Just before 8:30 p.m., a juvenile driving a Lincoln Town Car, traveling with three juvenile passengers, was heading eastbound on Hidden Valley Drive when he went off the road due to excessive speed and crashed through a stucco wall, located near 2060 E. Munich Drive, St. George Police Sgt. Sam Despain said.

“I was in my house at the time and I could hear screeching tires, then I heard a loud crash,” nearby resident Adam Rue said. “I walked down the road, and there were already people on the scene that had called the police. One guy was about 100 feet away from where the car crashed.”

Hidden Valley Road is a big, wide road that leads to a dead end, and it tends to be a hotspot for juveniles to drag race and spin doughnuts, Rue said.

The collision caused more $1,000 in damage, and the driver was issued citations for reckless driving, negligent collision and expired registration, Despain said.

The juvenile’s car was towed.

This report is based on preliminary information provided by responders on scene and may not contain the full scope of findings.

    Its not the parents fault. Its the sytem. These days you can’t discipline your child without dcfs being involved saying your an abuser or a neglector unless you leave a baby in a hot car and it dies and you go to lds church on sundays then dcfs won’t get involved

    Is seems that people who are crashing into structures are either juveniles or old people

    It is interesting that the wall is totaled but the the front of the car seems intact in the pic .
    The car damage seems to be on the drivers front side .
    I wish there was a vid of the moment of impact to see how that happened !
