ST. GEORGE – A pregnant woman was taken to the hospital Friday evening after being involved in a two-car accident on St. George Boulevard.
At about 5:30 p.m., eastbound traffic was backed up through the St. George Boulevard and 1000 East intersection. A woman traveling westbound in a white passenger car was attempting to turn left onto 1000 East on a blinking yellow light when a vehicle in the inside eastbound lane stopped to allow her through, St. George Police Officer Brett Huish said.
“That created a visibility problem, so she didn’t yield to the oncoming traffic. She couldn’t see it coming,” Huish said.
The woman ended up colliding with a smaller, compact-style car heading westbound in the outside lane. The smaller car was driven by a pregnant woman, St. George Fire Chief Robert Stoker said. He said the woman didn’t sustain any major injuries and was taken to Dixie Regional Medical Center to be checked out due to some preexisting conditions. The driver of the white passenger car was unharmed.
The white passenger car was inoperable and had to be towed from the scene. The driver of the white passenger car was cited for failing to yield to oncoming traffic, Huish said.
