ST. GEORGE – The names of individuals involved in Wednesday’s fatal vehicle accident on Red Hills Parkway, including the name of the man that was killed in the accident, have been released by the St. George Police Department.
Bruno Loreda, 52, was killed when the full-size pickup truck he was driving was hit by a cement pump truck driven by Darren Black, 53, in the area of 1275 E. Red Hills Parkway at about 6:20 a.m. Wednesday. Traveling with Loreda was 37-year-old Antonio Bernabe.
Bernabe was transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center via ambulance with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening. Black self-transported to the hospital.
According to a statement from the St. George Police Department, a preliminary investigation into the crash indicates that the cement truck was traveling westbound on Red Hills Parkway around 1300 East while Loreda’s pickup was traveling eastbound and approaching a bend in the road in the same area. The cement truck was unable to stay in its lane of travel at the bend and crossed into oncoming traffic, which resulted in a collision with the pickup. The impact caused the cement truck to roll onto its side.
Loreda was pronounced dead at the scene.
St. George Police Sgt. Sam Despain said Friday that the investigation into the circumstances and conditions surrounding the incident is still ongoing.
