St. George Police Officer Joe Watson said the pickup driver failed to yield to the passenger car just before 2 p.m. and struck the car at a slight angle, causing major damage to the car and moderate damage to the truck.

“The pickup truck was eastbound, making a left-hand turn and failed to yield to the other car heading westbound,” Watson said.

No injuries were reported in the crash and both vehicles were towed from the scene. The driver of the pickup truck received a citation for failure to yield at an intersection.

Units from the St. George Police and Fire departments, along with Gold Cross Ambulance, responded to the scene.
