At approximately 5 p.m., officers from the St. George Police Department responded to the scene of a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Red Hills Parkway and Skyline Drive. The accident occurred when a newer model gray Cadillac attempted to turn left from Red Hills Parkway westbound onto Skyline Drive. An older model gray Ford pickup truck was traveling downhill, westbound, on Red Hills Parkway and was unable to stop before colliding with the Cadillac in the middle of the intersection.
Both vehicles sustained extensive damage and had to be towed from the scene of the accident.
