WASHINGTON CITY – Two people were taken to the hospital after a car veered off the road and hit a parked car and then a chain link fence in Washington Saturday evening.
At around 8:30 p.m., a white Honda Civic was traveling southbound on 300 East when for a yet to be determined reason, it veered to the right and hit a parked vehicle, Washington City Police Department spokesman Ed Kantor said.
The owner of the parked vehicle, an SUV, was standing by it when the Honda hit it. The impact caused the SUV to hit its owner, Kantor said.
The Honda then left the roadway and crashed through a chain link fence in the area of 229 North 300 East. The driver then backed the Honda back on the street.
An adult female passenger from the Honda, and the SUV owner were both transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George with minor injuries.
Both the Honda and the SUV had to be towed from the scene.
The cause of the incident is still under investigation, Kantor said.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by responders and others on scene and may not contain the full scope of findings.
