At approximately 5:20 p.m., the woman was driving a blue Hyundai east on 200 North when she failed to yield the right-of-way to the driver of a silver Nissan traveling north on Main Street, Santa Clara-Ivins City Police Sgt. Nick Nuccitelli said.

The Nissan smashed into the passenger door of the Hyundai. The impact of the collision forced the Hyundai up onto a nearby sidewalk.

The woman driving the Hyundai was transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George after complaining of back pain, Nuccitelli said. The woman had two children with her who were checked out by medical personnel on scene before being released to their grandparents.

The driver of the Nissan sustained no reported injuries, Nuccitelli said.

Airbags deployed in both vehicles, all occupants were wearing seat belts and the children in the Hyundai were properly restrained, Nuccitelli said.

Both cars were severely damaged as a result of the crash and had to be towed from the scene.

Nuccitelli said the driver of the Hyundai would likely be issued a citation for failure to yield.

Santa Clara-Ivins Police and Ivins Fire and Rescue responded to the wreck.

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

    I’m glad the children are ok and I hope the mothers injuries are minor. seat belts and air bags did their job. in other situations this could of been tragic. the cost of the citation will be nothing compared to what it will cost the insurance company to replace the car and cover the mothers medical treatment
    I’m glad that there was no loss of life and everyone will be home with their loved ones
