After arriving on scene, investigators concluded that the woman — believed to be in her mid-50s or 60s — was walking in the parking lot when a person driving a 2012 Nissan Rogue reversed out of a parking space and hit her, Triplett said.
Gold Cross Ambulance and the St. George Police Department also responded to the scene, Triplett said.
The woman sustained injuries to her leg and was transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center.
The Fire Department reopened the parking lot to traffic by 12:45 p.m.
Triplett cautioned that people need to remember to be cautious when driving, even if they are just in a parking lot. Take the time to check the area and ensure everything is safe, he said.
No citations were given to the driver of the Nissan, Triplett said.
