ST. GEORGE — An elderly man was driving southbound on Dixie Drive Saturday when a medical issue caused him to crash his vehicle.
“As the road curved, he didn’t and he drove off the west side, hit a rock and rolled over,” said Sgt. Jeff Bahlmann of the St. George Police Department.
First responders found the man unconscious at the scene. He was transported by ambulance to Dixie Regional Medical Center. His condition has since improved, and he was able to recount what happened to police.
It is unclear why he lost control of the car, Bahlmann said. He was the only occupant, and no other vehicles were involved.
Ed. CORRECTION: St. George News photographed this scene just after 10 a.m., the time of the accident was not specified by authorities, therefore the time of the accident as “around 10 a.m.” has been removed from the report as it may be in error.
