The woman, who was driving a Toyota Sienna minivan, was pulling out of a parking lot at a meetinghouse for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on East 100 South when a driver in a westbound Dodge Dakota pickup truck hit the minivan, St. George Police Officer Mike Christensen said.

She was transported to the hospital by Gold Cross Ambulance with minor injuries, Christensen said. The incident happened at approximately 2:45 p.m. Sunday.

“She’s going to be issued a citation,” Christensen said of the Toyota driver. “I don’t know yet, but it’ll probably be for failure to yield.”

A passenger in the Toyota Sienna who had a warrant was also arrested at the scene, Christensen said.

No one in the Dodge Dakota was injured.

Both vehicles blocked traffic for about 30 minutes until they were both towed away. St. George Fire Department also 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. Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.

      So why did your parents give you the name “comments?” Did they not love you? You must live a miserable life especially when you come on here to put others down to raise yourself up with some bogus name. Must be fun hiding behind a lie.

        who’s hiding? I guess I could change my user name to my phone no. huh? or maybe my home address?

        Wouldn’t that be fun.

    Kind of a misleading title, don’t you think? It sounds like the passenger caused the accident and that’s why they were arrested.

      Yes, that’s what I thought, too.

    From the bookings website, looks like it might be on a suspended DL[non-alcohol] that ended in a warrant. Probably missed a court date.
