ST. GEORGE – Just before 5 p.m. as rain began to fall, a collision occurred in the intersection of River Road and 100 South in St. George today.
A gray Honda passenger car, carrying two elderly women, was traveling south on River Road, attempting to make a left-hand turn onto 100 South when they were hit by a northbound dark red Chevy, carrying two women.
Witnesses said the light was red when the elderly ladies in the Honda made the turn, St. George Police Lt. Doug Sargent said, and the Chevy traveling north on River Road had a green light.
Police and emergency responders were dispatched at 4:54 p.m. They had to cut the passenger door off the gray Honda to extricate one of the elderly ladies, but her injuries were minor, Sargent said.
Airbags deployed in the cars and nobody was transported for treatment.
The roads were largely cleared by 5:30 p.m. but officers remained on scene with those involved.
A citation may be issued to the driver of the gray Honda passenger car, Sargent said, for failure to stop at a red light.
