ST. GEORGE – An accident at the intersection of Bluff Street and Snow Canyon Parkway around 3:30 p.m. today backed up afternoon traffic for a time until the intersection could be cleared.

The accident occurred when a vehicle traveling southbound turned in front of a northbound vehicle turning left, St. George Police Lt. Thad Feltner said.

“The northbound vehicle did have the right of way,” Feltner said, “so there was a citation for failure to yield to a left turn.”

One person complained of neck pain, Feltner said, but there were no injuries requiring ambulance transport.

Both vehicles, an aluminum-colored passenger car and a grey truck, sustained front end damage and were towed from the scene.

    This is an awful intersection. Especially for people not familiar with the area. I’d dare say its worse than the roundabouts…

      What makes it awful? It is a four-way intersection controlled by lights. Should we have a roundabout installed?

      You have to be kidding! There isn’t anything wrong with this intersection. But there is plenty that is wrong with the bull headed, ignorant, self centered people who don’t know how to drive! Get a grip!
