ST. GEORGE – A hit-and-run incident Saturday night on Ledges Parkway in St. George has police on the lookout for a silver vehicle with possible front-end damage.
The St. George Communications Center received a call about 9:18 p.m. from residents living in The Ledges area, claiming a vehicle had drifted into the center median on Ledges Parkway and struck a light pole, dislodging it from the ground. The vehicle then backed away from the pole and left the scene.
“There is a wedding up the road, so we’re wondering if it was someone who may have been drinking and driving,” St. George Police Officer Scott Cleveland said. “There is likely some heavy front-end damage to the vehicle.”
Police were unsure of the exact make and model of the vehicle involved in the crash.
“It was likely a truck, but we’re really unsure at this time,” Cleveland said.
Anyone with information regarding this incident should call the St. George Police dispatch line at 435-627-4300.
