CEDAR CITY — Two adult males were transported to Valley View Medical Center in Cedar City with minor injuries following an accident on Lund Highway Thursday morning.

At approximately 11 a.m., a GMC Sonoma with two adult male occupants was traveling north on Lund Highway when it collided with a GMC Sierra that entered the highway from a construction site at 1134 N. Lund Highway, Cedar City Police Sgt. Jimmy Roden said.

“The Sierra failed to yield the right of way to the Sonoma,” Roden said.

The driver of the Sierra stated he didn’t see the other vehicle when he entered the roadway. The impact of the crash caused the Sonoma to roll over onto its top, Roden said.

The two occupants of the Sonoma suffered various minor injuries, including an arm injury and back pain from the impact, and were transported to Valley View Medical Center to be checked out further.

Traffic was temporarily delayed on Lund Highway while the vehicles were removed from the scene. No citations were given as a result of the accident. The extent of damage to the vehicles was not specified in the accident report.

This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement or other emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.

    If your injuries are minor then take a taxi if you feel you need to go to the hospital for treatment. A taxi ride will cost you about $20 as opposed to the $700 ambulance ride.
