ST. GEORGE — A triple-car collision Tuesday resulted in backed-up traffic on Riverside Drive.
Just prior to 4 p.m., southbound traffic on Riverside Drive was backing up at the light at the Foremaster Drive intersection. A Toyota Camry stopped for traffic, while the car behind it did not, St. George Police officer Andy Mickelson said.
The second vehicle, a Chevrolet HHR, failed to stop and rear-ended the Toyota Camry. That was followed by another collision involving a Dodge pickup truck that hit the HHR and sent it back in the rear of the Camry.
“That car hit that car, and this truck hit that car back into that car,” Mickelson said.
While a passenger in the Camry complained of neck pain, no injuries were reported, and no one was taken to the hospital.
While the three vehicles were pulled over to the side of the road, just south of 1990 East, southbound traffic on Riverside Drive was backed up past the Mall Drive intersection. Southbound traffic was merged into a single lane as officers officers directed traffic around the crash site.
The scene was cleared by 5 p.m. Each vehicle was able to be driven away from the scene.
The drivers of the Chevrolet HHR and Dodge truck were both cited for following too close, Mickelson said.
