“There was a silver Volkswagen traveling northbound on River Road on the inside lane,” St. George Police Officer Tyrell Bangerter said, “when a black Honda Accord was attempting to turn left onto 170 South. The driver of the black Accord started to make the left-hand turn in front of the Volkswagen. The driver of the Volkswagen attempted to avoid them and swerved to the right, but the Honda struck the Volkswagen on the driver’s front tire and fender.”

The driver of the Honda, which had 3 passengers including children, was issued a citation for driving without a license and failure to yield on a left-hand turn, Bangerter said.

Gold Cross ambulance was called to the scene, but both drivers and all passengers refused transportation to the hospital.

Both vehicles were towed as they were unable to function from the result of the incident.

This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement or other emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.

    The secret magic underwear is obviously defective, because the secret magic underwear isn’t preventing the wearers from having accidents. Maybe there’s a service recall on the secret magic underwear for adding the accident prevention stitches.
