Washington City collision sends one man to hospital

 ST. GEORGE — An afternoon collision between a pickup truck and a passenger car in Washington City sent one man to the hospital on Thursday.

Shortly before noon, officers and emergency personnel responded to reports of a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Green Springs Drive and Telegraph/Red Cliffs Drive, Washington Public Information Officer Ed Kantor said.

“A pickup truck with an adult male driver and one adult female passenger was northbound on Green Springs Drive. They entered the intersection of Green Springs and Telegraph. Their intent was to turn westbound or left onto Red Cliffs Drive there,” Kantor said. “In doing so, they turned in front of a southbound passenger car, driven by one adult male driver. The passenger car was unable to stop and struck the pickup truck in the front passenger side.”

The driver of the Saturn was transported by ambulance to Dixie Regional Medical Center for evaluation of possible broken bones, Kantor said. No one in the pickup truck was injured.

Due to a lack of independent witnesses no citations were issued. The incident is under investigation.

Washington City Police, St. George Police, St. George Fire Department and Gold Cross Ambulance all responded to 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.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene.
