WASHINGTON CITY – Two people were taken to Dixie Regional Medical Center Saturday morning as result of a driver’s failure to yield to oncoming traffic.
Around 8:20 a.m., an SUV was southbound on Washington Parkway and attempted to cross Telegraph Street when it collided with another SUV. Ed Kantor, Washington City Police public information officer, said the driver of the southbound SUV intended to cross Telegraph in order to park on the other side. However, while crossing the road, the first SUV collided with a second SUV traveling eastbound on Telegraph.
Kantor said the second SUV spun out of control and crashed into a parked car on the side of the road. The driver of the second SUV, an adult female, was taken to the hospital for broken bones and evaluation. A juvenile female who was in the parked car was also taken to the hospital as a precaution.
The driver of the first SUV was cited for not yielding to oncoming traffic.
