At about 6:15 p.m., St. George Police officers responded to the crash at the intersection of 850 North and 3050 East, where they encountered a disabled Buick Park Avenue with a smashed-in front driver’s side.

The Buick was stuck in the middle of the intersection, while the other car, a Chevrolet Impala, remained operable and was pulled off the road.
