ST. GEORGE — Traffic was slowed Friday afternoon after two passenger cars collided at the intersection of 1100 North and Dixie Downs Road in St. George.
Just before 2 p.m., a woman driving a silver passenger car with a young child in the back seat was stopped at a stop sign on 1100 North, waiting to make a left turn onto Dixie Downs Road, St. George Police Officer Jared Carlson said.
At the same time, a woman in a gold car, also traveling with a child in the vehicle, was driving northbound on Dixie Downs Road in the left lane behind a flatbed pickup truck. As the woman in the gold car neared 1100 North, the silver car pulled into the road to make her left turn and the gold car T-boned the silver car, Carlson said.
