HURRICANE — Two women were transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center Thursday evening after two vehicles collided head-on in front of the Maverik gas station, located at 3400 West.
At approximately 5:38 p.m., a green Honda Pilot driven by a man and carrying four passengers was headed eastbound on state Route 9. At the intersection of SR-9 and 3400 West, the Pilot merged into the left turning lane and began turning left onto 3400 West. Simultaneously, a blue Toyota Matrix driven by a woman was heading westbound on SR-9. She was traveling through the intersection when her Matrix and the Pilot collided head-on, Hurricane Police Sgt. Brandon Buell said.
Both eastbound lanes remained open while the accident was cleaned up, but the left turning lane onto 3400 West was closed for about an hour, and westbound lanes were diverted to a single lane.
The woman driving the Matrix and one female passenger in the Pilot were transported by ambulance to Dixie Regional Medical Center. Both were in stable condition.
Both vehicles had to be towed. The accident is still under investigation.
Anyone who witnessed the accident and has information regarding it is asked to call the Hurricane City Police Department at 435-627-4999.
