A woman driving a Toyota sedan was turning left onto 2450 S. Street from River Road at about 5:30 p.m. when her vehicle collided with a northbound Honda sedan.

St. George Police officer Burkeley Christian said the crash was the result of the woman driving the Toyota sedan failing to yield.

“She said she didn’t see the other coming through, so she turned in front of him,” he said.

She reported knee and chest pain that she was going to check out at the hospital, but no one was transported via ambulance from the scene, Christian said.

The woman was issued a citation for failing to yield on a left turn.

Traffic at the intersection was slowed for about one hour as emergency responders cleared the scene and the vehicles were towed.

The St. George Police Department and Gold Cross Ambulance also responded to the scene.

    Just another day in paradise….like the commercial for Stucki farms says..”Are we in Heaven”? Not yet but were building it….yeah but without the infrastructure to support the growth….these crashes will only get worse, much worse, until many are killed before anything is done on the Sate or local level
