ST. GEORGE — A left-hand turn cut too short resulted in a two-car collision Sunday afternoon at the intersection of East Riverside Drive and South River Road in St. George.
At 6:14 p.m., a man driving a dark-grey Buick Lacrosse, heading north on River Road, made a left-hand turn heading west on Riverside Drive, St. George Police Officer Curtis Raban said, when he struck a black Volkswagen Jetta in the turning lane carrying four occupants.
The driver of the Buick reportedly made the turn too short, Raban said, cutting into the turning lane on the upcoming street.
Shannon Evertsen, the driver of the Volkswagen, said two of the four occupants in her vehicle were children.
No injuries were reported, Raban said, but both vehicles required a tow truck to remove them from the scene. The St. George Fire Department also responded to the area to clean up fluid residue from the accident.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by the authorities and may not contain the full scope of findings.
