Cedar City, UT (May 08, 2019) – A car accident took place on Wednesday, May 8th that affected both the northbound and southbound lanes of traffic. The accident is reported to have occurred just before 2:00 in the afternoon.
Officers from the Cedar City Police Department along with other emergency responders arrived at the scene of an accident that involved a Jeep and a passenger vehicle that had collided in the middle of a busy intersection near the 900 block of South Main Street.
According to preliminary reports, a black Jeep Cherokee pulled out onto South Main Street, headed southbound when a grey Volkswagon Jetta that was headed northbound suddenly collided with the driver’s side of the Jeep. The Jetta then crashed into a light pole located in a convenience store parking lot on the opposite side of the road before coming to a stop on the sidewalk.
The airbags in both vehicles deployed and both vehicles had to be towed away from the scene and the driver of the Jeep received a citation for failing to yield the right of way.
A member of the Gold Cross Ambulance team reported that the injuries sustained could easily have been much worse for everyone involved.
We wish those who were injured as a result of this accident a full and speedy recovery.
