ST. GEORGE — Traffic was slowed after a car collided with two oncoming vehicles on Red Cliffs Drive in St. George Thursday afternoon.
At about 3:55 p.m., a maroon Honda SUV driving westbound on Red Cliffs Drive attempted a U-turn at the intersection of 2450 East and collided with two vehicles heading eastbound, Alexis Barrett, a witness to the accident, said. The Honda pushed one of the vehicles into the dirt near the interstate; the other vehicle was able to move to the side of the road.
The St. George Fire Department and an ambulance responded within three minutes of the accident, Barrett said. None of the parties involved in the collision were transported to the hospital, however.
“Someone was looking out for them, since no one was hurt,” Barrett said.
The Fire Department cleared the scene quickly and traffic was able to resume, St. George Police Sargeant Sam Despain said. The driver of the Honda was issued a citation for an improper U-turn.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement or other emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.
