ST. GEORGE — One driver’s failure to yield after a stop sign at the intersection of 100 South and 1200 East in St. George resulted in a two-vehicle crash Tuesday morning.
At approximately 8:46 a.m., the driver of a blue 2014 Nissan Versa, traveling north on 1200 East, was attempting to make a left-hand turn to travel west on 100 South, St. George Police Officer Andy Mickelson said.
During that left turn, Mickelson said the driver of the Nissan didn’t see the driver of a silver 2002 Buick Park Avenue traveling east on 100 South, and the two vehicles collided at the intersection.
Airbags in the vehicles deployed and only minor injuries were reported as a result of the crash, Mickelson said, adding that no one involved in the crash required medical transport to the hospital.
Both cars were rendered inoperable during the collision and had to be towed from the scene.
“St. George Fire responded to help with cleanup,” Mickelson said. “There were fluids and debris all over the roadway.”
Westbound lanes of 1200 East were blocked for some time as crews worked to clear the scene.
The driver of the Nissan was issued a citation for failure to yield after a stop sign, Mickelson said.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.
