The driver of the Fit was traveling east on Sunset Boulevard around 1:30 p.m. when she ran a red light at the intersection of Westridge Drive and crashed into a red minivan traveling north on Westridge Drive, St. George Police officer Tiffany Atkin said.

The Fit then crashed into a gray Ford Escape that was also traveling east on Sunset Boulevard but which was stopped at the intersection.

The driver of the minivan and her 1-year-old daughter were transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center with minor injuries.

Both occupants of the Fit were also transported. The driver had minor injuries, and the male passenger had lost consciousness following the accident.

“He took the brunt of it,” Atkin said of the passenger.

The driver of the Fit was issued a citation for failure to stop at a red light.

This report is based on statements from police and may not contain the full scope of findings.

St. George News reporter Ryann Richardson contributed to this report.

Ed. note: An earlier version of this article incorrectly identified the vehicle that ran the red light as the minivan, as relayed by St. George Police; however, further investigation has uncovered that the driver of the Honda Fit was at fault.
