ST. GEORGE — Two people were taken to the hospital Wednesday afternoon after a car crash on Bluff Street, which slowed traffic for about 30 minutes near Smith’s Food and Drug.
At approximately 1:20 p.m., the accident was reported and emergency responders arrived shortly thereafter to find a Nissan passenger car and a GMC Denali both with front-end damage. The drivers of both vehicles were wearing their seat belts, but were both transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center, St. George Police Officer Jamison Hale said. Hale did not know the extent of the injuries at the time, he said.
The Nissan was stopped at the stop sign where Tabernacle Street joins Bluff Street, Hale said. The driver of the Nissan turned north onto Bluff Street when the Denali, which was traveling north on Bluff, collided with the Nissan.
The driver of the Nissan was cited for failure to yield, Hale said.
There were no passengers in either car, and there were no other vehicles involved in the accident.
Both vehicles were towed from the scene and traffic was flowing again by 1:50 p.m.
Members of the St. George Police, St. George Fire, and Gold Cross Ambulance all assisted with the accident.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by responders on scene and may not contain the full scope of findings.
