ST. GEORGE – Failure to yield to oncoming traffic Wednesday evening triggered a crash at 700 East and Tabernacle, temporarily shutting down part of the intersection.
Around 5:35 p.m., a white Mercury Grand Marquis, traveling eastbound on Tabernacle Street, had stopped at the 700 East intersection, then proceeded to make a left-hand turn heading north. While turning onto 700 East, the Mercury collided with a Jaguar traveling southbound on 700 East, St. George Police Sgt. Rich Triplett said.
The drivers and passengers involved in the accident were unharmed but both cars had to be towed from the scene, Triplett said.
A portion of the intersection and 700 East were blocked off by responders working to investigate, and ultimately, clear the scene.
Responding parties included St. George Police and the St. George Fire Department.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by the authorities and may not contain the full scope of findings.
