ST. GEORGE — St. George Boulevard traffic was slowed for approximately an hour Wednesday evening following a three-vehicle collision near the divergent diamond interchange.
At approximately 6 p.m., a woman driving a green Dodge Stratus, traveling east on St. George Boulevard, collided with the rear of a silver passenger car, St. George Police Sgt. Dave Williams said. The silver passenger car then smashed into the back of a small pickup truck that was stopped at a red traffic light.
St. George Police officers and members of the Volunteers in Public Safety Division responded to the scene and directed traffic through the accident area, Williams said. The St. George Fire Department also assisted with the cleanup efforts.
Each of the three vehicles had only one occupant, and no injuries were reported, Williams said.
The woman driving the Dodge Stratus was issued a citation for following too close to another vehicle, Williams said.
The Dodge Stratus and silver passenger car were towed from the scene and traffic was able to continue as usual within an hour.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by authorities and may not contain the full scope of findings.
