ST. GEORGE – The intersection of 900 East and 900 South in St. George was blocked for about an hour Friday night following a two-car collision.
At about 10 p.m., a silver car was heading southbound on 900 East toward the 900 South intersection, St. George Police Sgt. Dave Williams said. The driver of the silver car was using a hands-free device for his phone when he accessed the wrong app and proceeded to try and select the right one. While he was doing this, his car ran through a stop sign and entered the intersection, where it collided with a red car traveling in the westbound lane of 900 South, Williams said.
While the red car sustained some visible damage as a result of the collision, the front of the silver car was obliterated. However, nether the driver of the silver car nor the driver and passenger in the red car were injured in the crash, Williams said.
Both cars had to be towed from the scene. The driver of the silver car was cited for careless driving.
Responders from the St. George Police and St. George Fire departments attended to the scene.
