ST. GEORGE – A motorhome pulling into a Mexican restaurant near 700 North Bluff Street allegedly triggered a three-vehicle rear-end crash Monday morning.
At approximately 9:30 a.m., a 1999 white Streamline motorhome driven by a 53-year-old woman was headed south on Bluff Street and turned right into a parking lot at 705 North Bluff, St. George Police Officer Lona Trombley said.
A gray 2009 Subaru Impreza driven by a 27-year-old man was following the Streamline; behind him was a 1986 International Series dump truck driven by a 35-year-old man.
“The Streamline slowed to turn into a taco shop,” Trombley said. “The Subaru slowed and stopped because the Streamline was taking so long to get into the driveway.”
After the Subaru stopped, it was hit by the dump truck and pushed into the Streamline, Trombley said.
The driver of the Subaru was bleeding from his head after the accident and was checked out at the scene by emergency medical services, Trombley said. The man transported himself to the hospital.
No other injuries were reported. The driver of the dump truck was cited for having no proof of insurance and following too closely, Trombley said.
No airbags deployed in the accident, and everyone involved was wearing a seat belt, Trombley said.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement or other emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.
