ST. GEORGE – A motorcyclist was struck by a truck at the intersection of River Road and 100 South just before 1 p.m. Tuesday.
The motorcyclist was southbound and a white Chevy truck was northbound on River Road. The motorcylist stopped at the traffic signal at 100 South, and then proceeded with traffic when the signal turned green. The woman driving the white Chevy truck proceeded to make a left-hand turn toward 100 South at the same time, colliding with the oncoming motorcycle.
The driver of the truck appeared to be in some shock from the accident, St. George Police Lt. Thad Feltner said, but after being evaluated by Gold Cross Ambulance crews, no serious injuries were identified and both the truck driver and motorcycle rider refused transport.
“The motorcyclist hit the front right-hand side of the truck,” Feltner said. “We have an independent witness who observed the crash, and the motorcycle did have the right of way.”
This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement or other emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.
Ed. note: Feltner said the driver of the truck appeared to be in some shock, not both driver and rider.
