A Hyundai sedan was traveling south on S. 400 East approaching E. 300 South just after 3:30 p.m. A westbound Nissan sedan was stopped at the stop sign by the St. George Recreation Center and pulled out in front of the Hyundai sedan, St. George Police Sgt. Rich Triplett said.

The Hyundai sedan struck the Nissan sedan and pushed it through the intersection, Triplett said. The Hyundai sedan continued through the intersection and came to rest partially on the sidewalk on the southwest corner, with a wheel hanging over the deep rain gutter.

All occupants were wearing their seat belts and air bags deployed. Triplett said that contributed to no injuries being suffered in the crash.

The driver of the Nissan sedan was cited for a stop sign violation, the officer said.

Units from the St. George Police and Fire Departments responded to the accident.

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