ST. GEORGE – A two-vehicle collision at the intersection of 700 South and River Road in St. George Tuesday morning resulted in minor injuries and a citation for failure to yield.
Around 6:55 a.m., a 16-year-old boy was traveling north on River Road and attempting to make a left turn onto 700 South, St. George Police Sgt. Craig Harding. However, the boy didn’t notice that the green arrow he had changed to a yellow light and then went away.
As the boy was turning, a man traveling south in a truck on River Road smashed into the 16-year-old’s truck.
Minor injuries were reported by two men in the southbound truck.
“There’s some bumps and bruises,” Harding said, “and there’s going to be a couple people who go over and just get checked out (at the hospital).”
Both trucks were rendered inoperable and had to be towed from the scene.
The 16-year-old boy was issued a citation for failure to yield on a left turn.
St. George Police, St. George Fire and Gold Cross Ambulance responded to the collision.
