ST. GEORGE — Drowsy driving was apparently the cause of an early morning crash Saturday at the intersection of 1450 South and 2580 East where the car uprooted a tree and damaged a power pole and utility box.
St. George Police Sgt. Rich Triplett said the driver was traveling west on 1450 South about 7 a.m. when she apparently fell asleep. The car clipped a power pole, bent the utility box next to it and uprooted a tree before coming to rest next to a block wall.
The driver was taken by ambulance to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George with what appeared to be a minor wrist injury. No other injuries were reported.
No utility disruptions were reported.
