ST. GEORGE – An SUV ended up on its side and two passenger cars were damaged in a three-car accident at the intersection of 700 East and Tabernacle Street in St. George Friday afternoon.
Around 3:10 p.m., the SUV was traveling north on 700 East when it came to the Tabernacle intersection and started to make a left turn, colliding with a Volkswagen passenger car going south, St. George Police Officer Travis Willinger said.
The impact smashed the front of the Volkswagen and sent the SUV into a Honda passenger car waiting to make a right turn onto 700 East. The SUV finally came to rest on its side in the intersection.
LeeAnne Stanard, a witness to the accident, said the SUV flew into the air and landed on top of the Honda’s hood, then slipped off onto the road.
No one was reported being seriously injured in the accident, Willinger said, nor did anyone need to be taken to the hospital by ambulance. All three cars had to be towed from the scene.
The driver of the SUV was cited, Willinger said, and there were no signs of impaired driving related to the accident. The scene was cleared by 3:40 p.m.
