ST. GEORGE — Gold Cross Ambulance transported one man to the hospital Sunday morning after another car collided with his in the intersection of 200 East and 300 South in St. George.
Just before 9 a.m., a woman driving a black Alero, with two passengers, was traveling eastbound on 300 South on her way to church. As she approached 200 East, she didn’t see the stop sign and continued through the intersection at about 25 miles per hour and collided into the rear passenger side of a red Kia driven by a man, headed southbound on 200 East, St. George Police Officer Jeremy Needles said.
The impact of the collision caused the Alero to spin 180 degrees clockwise and then continue backward up onto the grass of the Temple Terrace townhouses. The Kia spun 360 degrees until it came to a stop just south of the intersection on 200 East.
The man driving the Kia suffered head and neck injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening, Needles said, and was transported by Gold Cross Ambulance to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George.
“Everyone was wearing seatbelts,” Needles said, “which probably helped minimize injuries.”
Both vehicles were towed. The driver of the Alero was cited for running a stop sign.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by responders on scene and may not contain the full scope of findings.
