ST. GEORGE – Emergency crews responded to a single-vehicle accident on Dixie Drive Thursday morning.
Around 10 a.m., a red Pontiac Vibe was heading northbound around 580 West Dixie Drive when something caused the driver to lose control of the vehicle, St. George Police Sgt. Sam Despain said. The Vibe veered across the southbound lanes, got onto the curb, hit a sign post, proceeded through the 600 West Dixie Drive intersection on a red light, left the roadway and finally came to a stop once it hit the embankment.
The driver of the Vibe was uninjured and no other cars were involved in the incident. The driver was unable to tell officers at the scene exactly what happened, Despain said. The driver couldn’t recall the details. Potential distractions or impairments were not mentioned as possible factors in the crash. Whether or not a medical issue may have played a part is also unknown.
The Vibe was rendered inoperable and had to be towed away.
