ST. GEORGE — A juvenile crashed his car through a stucco wall Thursday evening after he lost control while allegedly speeding on Hidden Valley Drive in St. George, causing more than $1,000 worth of damage.
Just before 8:30 p.m., a juvenile driving a Lincoln Town Car, traveling with three juvenile passengers, was heading eastbound on Hidden Valley Drive when he went off the road due to excessive speed and crashed through a stucco wall, located near 2060 E. Munich Drive, St. George Police Sgt. Sam Despain said.
“I was in my house at the time and I could hear screeching tires, then I heard a loud crash,” nearby resident Adam Rue said. “I walked down the road, and there were already people on the scene that had called the police. One guy was about 100 feet away from where the car crashed.”
Hidden Valley Road is a big, wide road that leads to a dead end, and it tends to be a hotspot for juveniles to drag race and spin doughnuts, Rue said.
The collision caused more $1,000 in damage, and the driver was issued citations for reckless driving, negligent collision and expired registration, Despain said.
The juvenile’s car was towed.
