ST. GEORGE — A man was taken to the hospital for injuries sustained in an accident late this morning on Red Hills Parkway. The accident occurred when a woman driving a gray Honda Ridgeline, which was traveling north on 900 East, tried to make a left turn onto Red Hills Parkway. The Ridgeline pulled into the path of a full-sized black GMC pickup truck that was hauling a 30-foot flatbed trailer.
“The person in the gray utility truck should have yielded the right-of-way,” St. George Police Officer Chad Pectol said. The black truck was driving west on Red Hills Parkway and apparently struck the Ridgeline just behind the rear passenger door. The Ridgeline then spun around the front of the truck, which was still moving forward, and collided with it again, hitting the passenger side of the black GMC truck.
The injured man was a passenger in the Ridgeline, Pectol said. His injuries did not appear to be very serious, he said, but he was taken by ambulance to Dixie Regional Medical center as a precaution.
Pectol said that citations had not yet been written because the accident was still under investigation; however, he said that the the driver of the Ridgeline truck did not have the right-of-way.
