ST. GEORGE — A motorcyclist was injured after slamming into the side of a car at the intersection of River Road and 2450 S. Street shortly after 7 p.m. Wednesday.
A white Kia Sorento was southbound on River Road and turning left onto 2450 S. Street when the motorcycle, which was northbound, collided with the rear passenger-side door of the car, St. George Police Officer Jeremy Needles said.
Needles said the driver of the Sorento told him she did not see the motorcycle when she turned.
“He was knocked off his bike and then transported to the hospital conscious, breathing and talking to us,” Needles said.
An ambulance took the injured man to the Dixie Regional Medical Center. The extent of his injuries was not immediately known, Needles said.
The intersection was partly blocked by officials until a tow truck arrived to take the man’s damaged motorcycle out of the road.
No citations were issued for the driver or the motorcyclist.
