At approximately 12:09 p.m., a woman driving west on Cactus Lane in a silver Subaru Outback proceeded to make a left turn to travel south on Green Springs Drive, Washington City Police spokesman Ed Kantor said.

In doing so, the woman failed to yield to a woman traveling north on Green Springs Drive in a blue Scion xA, Kantor said, and the two vehicles collided.

The impact of the crash caused the Scion to leave the roadway, jump a curb and end up on the fairway of the golf course, Kantor said.

Airbags deployed in both vehicles and both woman were wearing seat belts when the incident occurred.

While there did not appear to be any serious injuries as a result of the collision, Kantor said, as a precaution, the woman driving the Scion was transported by ambulance to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George for evaluation.

The driver of the Subaru was issued a citation for improper left turn, Kantor said.

Traffic in the area was impeded for a short time as crews worked to clear debris and remove the vehicles. Both vehicles were towed from the scene.

In addition to Washington City Police, Washington City Fire and Gold Cross Ambulance responded to the incident.
