ST. GEORGE – A three-vehicle crash on 400 East resulted in one man being sent to the hospital Monday morning.

Approximately 9:05 a.m., a woman driving a Subaru Legacy allegedly ran through a stop sign while westbound on 300 South. While passing through the intersection, the Subaru collided with a van that was southbound on 400 East, St. George Police Officer Jameson Hale said.

A passenger car following behind the van was unable to stop in time and rear-ended the van after it had been T-boned by the Subaru.

The driver of the van, an adult male, was taken to Dixie Regional Medical Center for evaluation after complaining about a possible neck injury, Hale said.

The driver of the Subaru was cited for failure to yield at a stop sign.

The vehicles involved each sustained minor damage and did not need to be towed from the scene.

St. George Fire and Gold Cross Ambulance also responded to the scene.

This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement and may not contain the full scope of findings as the investigation was ongoing.

    Some of those streets are so wide that the stop sign is way off to the side. On the other hand, there is that fat, white line going across the lane and presumably, the word S T O P printed below the line.

    I’ve noticed in that area trees block some of the stop signs. I don’t know about that intersection itself, but others yes… And also people like to park as close to the corner as they can so it kinda blocks the view, especially if it’s a bigger vehicle… Should’ve been paying more attention anyway being there’s a park and its always busy!!!
