LAVERKIN – A three-vehicle collision Monday on State Street in LaVerkin is the third collision to occur within a week in the construction area.
The collision happened at the intersection of 200 North and State Street, when the driver of a blue Pontiac Grand Am was trying to get across State Street and thought traffic had stopped to let her across, LaVerkin City Police Officer Amber Crouse said.
However, southbound traffic on the street had not stopped and the Grand Am hit into the passenger side of a black Nissan Rogue, causing it to spin and hit a black Dodge Dakota.
The driver of the Grand Am was issued a citation for failure to yield, Crouse said.
Both the Rogue and the Dakota had to be towed from the scene, as they were inoperable. The Dakota had damage to the front bumper, while the back driver’s side door of the Rogue was caved in and airbags in the car had deployed.
The driver of the Grand Am refused transport by ambulance to the hospital, but she did transport herself to the hospital, which Crouse said was mostly a precautionary measure.
No other injuries were reported.
Crouse said especially in the construction zone, where this collision and two others last week happened, drivers should slow down and pay attention.
This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement or other emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.
