ST. GEORGE – Two people were hospitalized Sunday night after a motorcycle collided with a car on River Road in St. George.
The St. George Communications Center received a report of a motorcycle-versus-car accident shortly after 9 p.m., Sunday. Two people had been riding a motorcycle southbound on River Road when a Honda Civic pulled out of the Mr. D’s Chevon gas station parking lot, triggering a collision between the two vehicles, St. George Police Sgt. Sam Despain said.
The 19-year-old male driver of the motorcycle and his 18-year-old female passenger were thrown off by the impact, Despain said. Both were injured, with the passenger receiving more serious injury to her head. Neither were wearing helmets.
Both were transported to the hospital. Based on preliminary information, Despain said it appears the driver of the Honda Civic failed to yield to oncoming traffic.
