ST. GEORGE — A woman suffered a minor injury to her head when a car crashed into her while she was riding a bicycle in St. George.
The accident, which occurred at about 11:45 a.m., Wednesday, took place at the intersection of 600 East and Tabernacle Street.
A man driving a red Oldsmobile stopped at the intersection northbound and proceeded forward when he felt the road was clear, St. George Police Officer Jamison Hale said. The woman on the bicycle was traveling eastbound at the intersection, and the Oldsmobile hit her.
The St. George Police, Fire Department and Gold Cross Ambulance arrived to attend to the woman after she was hit. She stood up under her own power and talked with police while the fire department treated her head wound. The woman remained standing and even made a phone call on her cell phone, while the fire department bandaged her head.
After the police took down statements, the driver of the Oldsmobile then gave a side hug to the woman and apologized that the accident took place.
Another woman, who was an acquaintance of the cyclist, arrived and transported the cyclist and the bicycle away from the scene.
The police issued a citation to the man driving the Oldsmobile for failing to yield to a pedestrian, Hale said.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by the authorities and may not contain the full scope of findings.
