The St. George Communications Center received a report of an auto-pedestrian accident about 7:30 a.m. St. George Police, St. George Fire and Gold Cross ambulance responded to the scene.
Two people were jogging along the shoulder of Red Hills Parkway when one of the joggers, a woman, was struck by the side of a truck, St. George Police Capt. Michael Giles said. The woman was taken by ambulance to the hospital.
“Last we heard the runner was going into surgery,” Giles said.
Southbound traffic along Red Hills Parkway was rerouted to Middleton Drive and northbound traffic was rerouted to 1800 East in order for investigation units to evaluate the scene. The area where the incident occurred is a narrow part of Red Hills Parkway.
“We are trying to determine the position of the truck in relationship to the runner,” Giles said. “They are doing what they can to reconstruct the scene.”
The roadway was reopened at about 10:30 a.m.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by responders on scene and may not contain the full scope of findings.
