Officers were dispatched to the incident at approximately 8:11 a.m. A Sunroc Corporation truck pulling a flatbed trailer was stopped in the left turn lane of 1450 South waiting to turn onto River Road, St. George Police Officer Jamison Hale said.

A white 2015 Chrysler 200 was stopped behind the truck.

“The light turned green for the traffic on 1450 South,” Hale said. “The Sunroc truck started to enter the intersection. It had to stop for oncoming traffic coming up north on River Road.”

“That truck was able to stop, but the car behind did not notice that he’d stopped a second time and ran into the back of his trailer,” Hale said.

The collision caused heavy damage to the Chrysler, which had to be towed from the scene.

There were no injuries reported at the scene of the crash. The female driver of the Chrysler was issued a citation, Hale said.

Officers from the St. George Police Department responded to the collision.

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