ST. GEORGE — Two women were transported to the hospital Friday afternoon following a collision that occurred near 450 S. Bluff St. in St. George.
Shortly after noon, a woman driving a Nissan Altima was traveling northbound on Bluff Street in the outside lane, St. George Police Officer Tyrell Bangerter said. At the same time, a woman traveling southbound in a Lexus merged into the left-hand lane and proceeded to turn left in front of the Nissan, and the two vehicles collided.
“They hit at an angle, front to front,” Bangerter said.
St. George Fire Department, St. George Police officers and Gold Cross Ambulance responded to the scene.
The driver of the Lexus was transported with minor injuries to Dixie Regional Medical Center by Gold Cross Ambulance. The driver of the Nissan suffered a broken ankle, Bangerter said, and was also transported to DRMC by Gold Cross Ambulance.
The driver of the Lexus was issued a citation for failing to yield on a left turn, Bangerter said.
Both vehicles were towed.
