ST. GEORGE — A collision occurred Friday morning in St. George after police say a driver who was speeding T-boned another vehicle.
St. George Police responded to the crash at approximately 7:40 a.m. at the intersection of 5 Sisters Drive and 740 South Circle involving a red 2006 Ford F-150 drive by a 17-year-old girl and a silver 2006 Pontiac Torrent driven by a 50-year-old man.
The driver of the Ford was northbound on 5 Sisters Drive, St. George Police officer Lona Trombley said, noting that the teen was changing the radio and speeding at the time of the crash.
