The incident took place on State Street at approximately 3:45 p.m.

“Officers found that a 1999 Dodge pickup was traveling south on State Street,” Hurricane Police Department spokesperson Tiffany Mower said, “when a 2006 Ford 500 turned off of 500 North onto State Street and failed to yield to the Dodge pickup.”

The impact pushed the Ford 500 sedan across State Street and partially into a field on the opposite side. The Dodge pickup was disabled in the center of the road.

Mower said the driver of the Ford 500 sedan was taken to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George with unknown injuries, while the Dodge pickup driver was uninjured. Both vehicles were disabled and had to be towed from the scene. Traffic was slowed through the area for about 45 minutes.

Citations are still pending, Mower said.

Hurricane City Police, LaVerkin City Police, BLM personnel and the Hurricane Valley Fire District 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.
