ST. GEORGE — You couldn’t be blamed for thinking you were seeing double if you drove by the intersection of Riverside and River Road Monday afternoon. Two extremely similar minivans collided after one of them ran the light at the intersection.

St. George Police Officer Lona Trombley said just before 4 p.m. a 2002 gray Honda Odyssey minivan driven by a 29-year-old female with three children inside was westbound on River Road when she ran the red light at Riverside Drive.

As she did so, her car collided with a northbound 2001 silver Honda Odyssey minivan driven by a 67-year-old man.

The collision severely damaged the front end of the gray Honda while crunching the left front of the silver Honda. Both cars required towing from the scene.

Trombley said the man driving the silver Honda was transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George with undisclosed non-life-threatening injuries. There were no injuries reported among the children or driver of the gray Honda.

Trombley added the female in the gray Honda was cited for failure to obey a traffic control device.

Units from the St. George Police and Fire Departments and Gold Cross Ambulance 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.
