ST. GEORGE – Two women were transported to the hospital Wednesday evening following a head-on collision at the intersection of Riverside Drive and River Road in St. George.
At approximately 9:16 p.m., a man driving a Hyundai Sonata, traveling westbound on Riverside Drive, attempted to make a left-hand turn to go south onto River Road, St. George Police Sgt. Spencer Holmes said. The Hyundai collided with a Mazda, occupied by two women, traveling eastbound on Riverside Drive.
“It was a head-on collision,” Holmes said. “It was a pretty significant impact on both vehicles. Airbags deployed in both vehicles.”
The two women in the Mazda were transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George via ambulance with minor injuries, he said, while the man driving the Hyundai remained on scene and declined medical treatment.
Traffic was diverted for approximately 35 minutes while crews worked to clear the scene. Both vehicles were towed.
The driver of the Hyundai was issued a citation for failure to yield, Holmes said.
