Police responded to the scene of the crash on Brigham Road near its intersection with 840 East in St. George at approximately 7:24 p.m.

The scooter driver, a woman in her 60s, was westbound on Brigham Road when she crashed.
“She originally wasn’t breathing at first, nonresponsive,” McDaniel said. “She started breathing on her own after about 30-40 seconds. No obvious bleeding but she does have several broken bones.”
Emergency medical personnel transported the woman to the hospital for treatment.
No other vehicles were involved.
No impairment is suspected, McDaniel said, and no citation is expected to be issued.
The scooter was impounded for later release to the patient.
Traffic was slowed but unimpeded as officers directed cars around the scene of the crash.
St. George Fire Department also responded to the incident.
