Man allegedly showboats on motorcycle, falls off, transported to hospital

ST. GEORGE — A 30-year-old St. George man was transported to the hospital with head injuries Saturday night following a motorcycle collision on North 1550 West in St. George.

At approximately 8:30 p.m., St. George Police Sgt. Shawn Carter said, the man may have been “showboating,” and fell off his motorcycle while showing off.

While the man was awake and alert, Carter said, blood was observed coming from his ears, and he was transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George for observation.

He was not wearing a helmet at the time of the collision.

The man was issued a citation for reckless driving, Carter said.

This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement or other emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.
