ST. GEORGE — An accident on Snow Canyon Boulevard clogged up westbound traffic for a time near the intersection with 1400 West after a black passenger car collided with a Jeep Wrangler.
The accident happened when the car, which was heading north on 1400 West, attempted to make a left turn onto Snow Canyon Parkway and ran into the path of the eastbound Jeep, St. George Police Sgt. Jeff Bahlmann said.
The vehicles crashed in the intersection and ended up in the westbound lane of Snow Canyon Parkway, blocking traffic in one lane.
“We don’t know at this time what the primary cause of the accident was,” Bahlmann said. “We are talking to witnesses to determine if (the Jeep) had it’s lights on or not.”
The driver of the car was transported by an acquaintance to Dixie Regional Medical Center for minor injuries, Bahlmann said. Both vehicles were severely damaged and had to be towed. No citations were issued, pending the results of the investigation into the cause of the accident.
