Police arrest man taken to hospital after motorcycle crash for DUI

ST. GEORGE – A 20-year-old St. George man was transported to the hospital early Saturday morning and subsequently arrested for DUI following a motorcycle crash on Valley View Drive in St. George.

Just before 2:30 a.m., Kaden Glenn Williams lost control of the 2006 Harley Davidson he was riding northbound on Valley View Drive, St. George Police Sgt. Spencer Holmes said.

“He lost control on the curve that’s just north of the Valley View-Dixie Drive intersection,” Holmes said.

Police and medical personnel responded to the single-vehicle collision in which Williams was transported by ambulance to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George for his injuries sustained during the collision.

“He got banged up pretty bad from that crash,” Holmes said, adding that the motorcycle was also banged up and appeared to have significant damage as a result of the crash.

An investigation into the crash was done, Holmes said, and Williams was found to be impaired to the point where he was rendered not safe to operate a motor vehicle.

“A blood draw was completed and he was subsequently arrested for DUI,” Holmes said, “(and) an alcohol restricted driver violation which means he’s an alcohol restricted driver – there was alcohol in his system and he was driving, which is a violation of that specific code that was applied to him because of a prior alcohol related incident. He is 20 years old so he was also charged with minor consumption of alcohol.”

Holmes said speeding too fast for conditions and improper lane travel also led to the crash.
