2 pregnant women transported after crash

ST. GEORGE – Two pregnant women were transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center Friday after the van they were riding in was struck by another vehicle.

At approximately 12:50 p.m. officers were dispatched to a collision between a red Chrysler Voyager van and a white Nissan passenger car at the intersection of 200 South and Main Street.

“The red van was northbound here on Main Street,” St. George Police Officer Dave McDaniel said. The Nissan was eastbound on 200 South, stopped at the stop sign on Main Street.

“And he just pulled out and hit the van. He failed to yield after stopping so he received a citation,” he said.

The van was driven by a middle-aged man; among the passengers were three young children and two pregnant women. There were no obvious injuries in the crash, McDaniel said, but the two women were transported to the hospital as a precaution.

“They’re both very far along and were just taken to be checked out. One is due any day,” McDaniel said.

Everyone involved in the crash was properly restrained and no airbags deployed. The driver of the van received a citation for never obtaining a driver’s license, McDaniel said.

St. George Police Department and Gold Cross Ambulance responded to the incident.

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