CEDAR CITY — One man was injured Tuesday morning after crashing his pickup truck through the fence of a home in Cedar City.
At approximately 11:14 a.m., officers from the Cedar City Police Department responded to the scene of an accident on 600 South, just in front of Cedar City High School.
An eyewitness to the accident reported seeing the truck travel off the roadway and sideswipe a tree, according to a press release from the Cedar City Police Department. The truck then went over some shrubs and into a carport support beam before finally striking a wooden fence and coming to rest there.
“The driver was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash,” the statement said.
The man driving the truck was the sole occupant of the vehicle, according to the release. He reportedly suffered a head injury during the crash and was transported to Valley View Medical Center.
The driver was then flown, via Life Flight, to Dixie Regional Medical Center, the statement said. The cause of the accident is still under investigation by authorities.
