ST. GEORGE – Running a red light resulted in twisted metal and vehicle tows for two motorists in St. George Saturday afternoon.
Around 1:10 p.m., St. George Police officers and other responders were sent to the intersection of St. George Boulevard and Bluff Street where the collision had occurred.
A Subaru Outback had been southbound on Bluff Street and ran the red light at St. George Boulevard. This resulted in a collision with a westbound Honda SUV moving though the intersection toward the old airport, the Ridge Top Complex, St. George Police officer Colby Carter said.
The collision caused the Honda to spin around in the intersection, said Jonathan Hummel, who witnessed the results of the incident.
As for the Subaru, it ended up going onto the old Airport Road where it went partially off the road and onto the curb before coming to a stop, Hummel said.
The driver of the Honda was able to get the vehicle into the Smith’s grocery story parking lot and out of the roadway.
Both vehicles sustained significant front-end damage. Airbags deployed in both vehicles and only minor scrapes were reported by the drivers. Both vehicles were towed.
