ST. GEORGE — Traffic slowed on St. George Boulevard Monday after a car rear-ended a mini van stopped at a stoplight.
At approximately 2:15 p.m., a woman driving a white Dodge minivan was headed east on St. George Boulevard when she stopped at a red light at 1050 East, St. George Police Sgt. Sam Despain said. At that time, a man driving a gray Honda Accord, also traveling east, came up behind the van and ran into it.
“(The Honda driver) didn’t see that the vehicle was stopped in front of it,” Despain said “… and it rear-ended that minivan.”
The drivers were the only people in the vehicles and neither was believed to have been injured in the crash, Despain said. While the minivan was able to drive away, the Honda required a tow truck to be removed from the scene.
The driver of the Honda was issued a citation for following too close, Despain said.
It’s always, important, Despain said, to remain aware of the vehicles around you and to always maintain a safe following distance.
