SANTA CLARA – A 13-year-old was killed and a 14-year-old injured after being hit by a vehicle today on Santa Clara Drive.
Sgt. Dan Ferguson with the Utah Highway Patrol said a 37-year-old St. George woman was driving westbound when she either fell asleep or blacked out. St. George News does not release names of suspects until they are officially charged.
