ST. GEORGE — A woman had to be extricated from her vehicle and taken by ambulance to Dixie Regional Medical Center after a two-vehicle collision on Tabernacle Street in St. George Wednesday afternoon.
At about 12:35 p.m., a woman driving a blue passenger car was pulling out of the Main Street Plaza parking garage, located at 36 E. Tabernacle St., and was attempting to turn left to head eastbound on Tabernacle Street. She failed to yield to oncoming traffic as she pulled into the roadway, and her vehicle was T-boned by a white SUV traveling westbound, St. George Lt. Thad Feltner said.
The woman’s car sustained damage on the driver’s side, while the white SUV sustained front-end damage as a result of the collision.
St. George Firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to free the woman from the blue passenger car. Gold Cross Ambulance transported her to the hospital to be treated for neck and back injuries, Feltner said. At the time of this publication, Feltner did not know the extent of her injuries.
No other injuries were reported as a result of the accident.
The blue passenger car was towed from the scene. The woman driving the blue passenger car will be cited for failure to yield, Feltner said.
