ST. GEORGE — A driver was injured and taken to the hospital after another failure-to-yield crash in St. George Sunday.
A woman driving a Buick LaCrosse on Dixie Drive failed to yield when making a left turn onto Valley View Drive at approximately 1 p.m., St. George Police officer Derek Lewis said. The LaCrosse slammed into the driver’s side of a Hyundai Sonata, which was northbound on Dixie Drive, Lewis said. (See Ed. Note)
The driver in the Sonata was injured and taken to the hospital by Gold Cross Ambulance.
“As far as injuries go, we’re not entirely sure of the severity of it,” Lewis said
The driver of the LaCrosse was issued a citation for failure to yield, Lewis said.
Both vehicles sustained major damage in the crash. The busy intersection was blocked for about 30 minutes until tow trucks could remove the damaged vehicles from the scene.
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.
