ST. GEORGE – An incident at Red Cliffs Mall in St. George made a splash Sunday afternoon when a semitrailer reportedly ran over a water valve on mall property.
The incident took place at approximately 1:05 p.m. Erupting like Old Faithful, the water valve, damaged by the collision, launched a continuous cascade of water more than 50 feet into the air, putting on a show for mall patrons and passersby.
Tire damage was evident on the semitrailer, which was marked as a CFI vehicle – a subsidiary of the Con-way Truckload organization.
Authorities were notified of the incident but police did not respond to the scene and no citations were given, according to information from the St. George Police Department. The City of St. George Water Services Department was contacted to handle the issue instead.
