ST. GEORGE — A child was injured after a driver drove through a red light, causing a crash on Sunset Boulevard Tuesday.
A Honda CR-V traveling west ran a red light at the intersection of Westridge Drive at about 1:35 p.m., striking a northbound Honda Accord, said St. George Police officer Andy Mickelson. The collision caused both cars to spin around; the Accord lost a wheel and its rear passenger-side window was smashed.
“The CR-V actually went off the road, through some brush and into a parking lot, narrowly missing a traffic light and a sign,” Mickelson said.
The CR-V lost its front bumper in the crash. Both cars were so severely damaged they needed to be towed from the scene.
A small child in the Accord received minor injuries and was bleeding, Mickelson said. The child was transported to the hospital in a Gold Cross Ambulance. No one was injured in the CR-V.
The driver of the CR-V was cited for failing to obey a traffic signal.
