LAVERKIN — One person was injured in a vehicle collision in LaVerkin Wednesday night when one of two speeding vehicles ran into another vehicle that was making a turn.
At approximately 10:31 p.m., the LaVerkin City Police Department and the Hurricane Fire Department responded to 437 S. State St. on reports of an accident, LaVerkin Police Chief Ben Lee said.
According to initial reports, two vehicles each driven by a man, were allegedly driving at high levels of speed northbound on State Street, Lee said. While the cars were both traveling at high speeds, he said, it is unknown whether they were actually racing.
“I don’t know whether it was specifically a race … or if they were just speeding down the street with each other,” Lee said.
One of the speeding vehicles struck another vehicle driven by a woman who was turning.
The woman driver was injured and was transported from the scene to Dixie Regional Medical Center. At the time of this publication, Lee said he did not know the extent of the woman’s injuries.
Though it is unknown whether the two cars were racing each other, Lee said, racing is not a regular occurrence in that area.
The two speeding drivers were each cited by police for exhibition of speed, a class B misdemeanor.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by responders on scene and may not contain the full scope of findings.
