Shortly after 1 p.m., a green Honda was going north on Bluff Street following a gold Mercedes. Both cars were on the inside lane at about 475 North, St. George Police Officer Chad Pectol said. Traffic was stopped, backed up for a red light at 500 North Bluff and one vehicle rear-ended the other.

Airbags in the Honda deployed, and no injuries were reported. The car was towed.

The driver of the Honda was cited for following too close, Pectol said.

This report is based on preliminary information provided by the authorities and may not contain the full scope of findings.

    This so sounds like St. George. I am so glad that we don’t live there anymore.

    “The driver of the Honda was cited for following too close, Pectol said.”
    Tailgate and distracted driving. Isn’t that the Utah way of driving?
