The incident was reported around 5 p.m. on 700 South in front of the St. George Swimming Pool and Dixie High School. 

The collision occurred after the driver of a white Toyota Corolla parked on 700 South facing east attempted to make a U-turn to travel west on the same street, St. George Police officer Tiffany Atkin said. 

The 30-year-old driver did not see a gray Volkswagen Passat that was traveling east on 700 South and pulled out in front of them, and the Passat crashed into the side of his vehicle. 

“He decided to make a U-turn to go back west and didn’t see the car coming and pulled out in front of it and got hit,” Atkin said. 

No injuries were reported as a result of the collision, and the driver of the Corolla was issued citations for an improper turn and never obtaining a driver’s license.
