ST. GEORGE – At about 5:13 this evening, a female pedestrian was hit by a vehicle when the driver of the vehicle looked left but failed to look right as he made a turn from 100 East onto St. George Boulevard in St. George.
The woman and a man, both mid 50s, were in the crosswalk when the vehicle – a travel van or “box van” – made the turn, the man jumped out of the way but the woman was hit. She was alert and conscious when she was transported from the scene, St. George Police Lt. Joseph Hartman said, and she did not appear to suffer any obvious traumatic injuries.
“When the officers got to the hospital they were doing a bunch of tests,” he said.
The driver, a man in his 40s, was cited for failure to yield to a pedestrian. Hartman said there was no indication of speed or driving under the influence or distracted driving contributing to the accident, just “inattention while driving,” he said.
Names of the parties involved were not available as this report is published.
