ST. GEORGE – Just before 4 p.m., Wednesday, members of the St. George Police Department and the St. George Fire Department responded to a collision on Main Street near 300 South in St. George.
A sedan, carrying two people, traveling northbound attempted to turn around in the middle of the street and, according to St. George Police Capt. Jerry Tischner, entered the path of the motorcycle, causing the accident.
“We arrived on scene, and it looked as though the motorcycle had hit the side of the car,” Tischner said. “And it bent the frame of the motorcycle onto (the riders’) right leg. We cut the bar off to relieve the pressure and take his foot out.”
The motorcycle driver was transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center by ambulance, though was described as not being seriously injured.
Speed was not believed to be a factor causing the collision.
The driver, who was cited by police, and the passenger of the car declined to comment on the accident.
