WASHINGTON CITY — Two cars collided in busy afternoon traffic on Green Springs Drive Monday, blocking a lane of traffic and resulting in one driver being cited for failure to yield.
Just before 4:30 p.m., a woman driving a Volvo was turning left from the parking lot of IHOP, Petco Animal Supplies, and Home Depot onto Green Springs Drive (which becomes 3050 East in St. George) to travel southbound. She collided with a Ford Bronco, driven by a man traveling northbound on Green Springs Drive, Washington City Police Public Information Officer Ed Kantor said.
No injuries were reported by either driver, but both vehicles were damaged and had to be towed from the scene, Kantor said.
The woman driving the Volvo was cited for failure to yield, and traffic in the right northbound lane was blocked off during the cleanup of the accident, Kantor said. Washington City Police Department and Washington City Fire Department both attended to the scene.
Kantor advised drivers to be cautious on Green Springs Drive, especially when making left turns from parking lots.
“If the left turn isn’t necessary, don’t make it,” he said.
Green Springs Drive is a dangerous place to drive, and has been the scene of many serious and fatal accidents, Kantor said. In that kind of busy traffic, drivers need to be extra cautious.
“Slow down and take a couple minutes when making turns in that area,” he said. “Do it safely and get to your destination safely.”
