ST. GEORGE — Police are looking for the hit-and-run driver who allegedly hit a middle school student riding his bike Monday along Bluff Street in St. George.
At approximately 11:55 a.m., officers responded to 745 S. Bluff Street to a report of a vehicle versus bicycle collision at the Kmart parking lot entrance, St. George Police Officer Lona Trombley said.
A Dixie Middle School student was riding his bike south on the Bluff Street sidewalk, he told police, when a vehicle pulled out of the parking lot to make a right-hand turn onto Bluff Street.
“He could see the driver and she could see him,” Trombley said. “The vehicle pulled forward into the student’s path, causing him to strike the vehicle and roll onto the hood.”
The driver, described as a Hispanic female with shoulder-length, brown hair and a grey shirt, possibly driving a silver Honda, Trombley said, never got out of her vehicle and quickly drove away, heading north on Bluff Street.
Neither the student nor witnesses at the scene were able to get a license plate.
The student had some scratches on his lower leg but didn’t suffer any serious injuries as a result of the collision, Trombley said.
Anyone with information about this collision or the identity of the hit-and-run driver, is asked to call the St. George Police Department at 435-627-4300.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement or other emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.
