WASHINGTON CITY – A red Mazda passenger car collided with a small silver SUV that was pulling a boat this morning.
The accident occurred on the Washington Parkway overpass. The collision sent the red Mazda into the Interstate 15 on ramp guard rail, and jack knifed the SUV and trailer.
The accident caused traffic slowing on the on-ramp from Washington Parkway to I-15 northbound and traffic going north across the parkway overpass being turned back while emergency crews worked to clean up the wreck.
“The silver SUV exited the freeway at the Washington Parkway,” Washington City Police spokesman Ed Kantor. “The silver SUV then decided to re-enter the freeway running the stop sign and colliding with the red passenger car which was headed north bound.”
The man driving the SUV, out of Nevada, was cited for running the stop sign, Kantor said. The woman driving the red Mazda was transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George for evaluation due to the impact of the crash.
