News short: Failure to yield leads to morning collision on Main Street

ST. GEORGE – A two-vehicle collision in the southbound lanes of Main Street near 700 South impacted morning traffic Tuesday.

Just before 8 a.m., a woman driving a Kia passenger car was westbound on 775 South and attempted to turn southbound onto Main Street. At the same time, a Nissan SUV was northbound on the inside lane on Main Street.

“The driver of the passenger car just didn’t see the SUV coming somehow and pulled out to make a left hand turn, right into the passenger-front corner of the SUV,” St. George Police Officer Tyrell Bangerter said.

Both vehicles were disabled and blocked a segment of the northbound lanes on Main Street, causing police to divert traffic around the crash.

The driver of the Kia passenger car was cited for failure to yield after a stop sign, Bangerter said.

Both vehicles had to be towed from the scene. The driver of the Kia was taken to Dixie Regional Medical Center by private transport for a precautionary exam.

St. George Police and Fire responded to the scene.

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