ST. GEORGE – Two vehicles had to be towed from the scene Thursday afternoon after a driver ran a stop sign and collided with another vehicle, rolling it on its side.
At approximately 3 p.m., a white Toyota Corolla was traveling south on 100 West in St. George, approaching the 600 South intersection. At the same time, a green truck driven by a juvenile male was traveling west on 600 South toward the same intersection.
“Witnesses say that the female driving the white Corolla just blew right through the stop sign,” St. George Police Sgt. Dave Williams said.
The juvenile driving the truck saw the Corolla coming and tried to swerve, Williams said, but the Corolla hit the truck on the passenger side rear tire and caused the truck to roll onto its side.
The Corolla sustained heavy front end damage as a result of the accident, Williams said. Two wreckers were called to the scene and both vehicles had to be towed. Nobody was transported to the hospital as a result of the accident.
“The driver of the Corolla was cited for failure to stop at the stop sign,” Williams said.
