ST. GEORGE – A Honda Pilot SUV flipped over onto its side in the middle of 212 N. 2940 E. in St. George Sunday afternoon after the driver was momentarily distracted and hit into a car parked on the side of the road.
“The driver was going down the street, got distracted drinking a bottle of water,” St. George Police Officer Jud Callaway said, “and veered over and hit the parked vehicle and went onto its side.”
The woman driving was alone in her vehicle when she hit the Toyota Corolla parked along the residential street at approximately 6:52 p.m.
Though the streets were filled with people in the aftermath of the ordeal, no one was around to witness what occurred at the time of the collision.
The driver was cited for careless driving, Callaway said.
No injuries were reported but both vehicles were towed from the scene.
