St. George, UT (February 12, 2019) – A two-vehicle accident shortly before 8 p.m. on Saturday sent one driver to the hospital for treatment of injuries.
According to police, the driver of a blue Chevrolet sedan was heading east on Riverside Drive when the driver pulled into the middle lane to make a left turn. The red passenger vehicle was heading west along Riverside Drive. As the light turned yellow, the Chevrolet turned across the intersection where it was struck by the red vehicle.

The driver of the blue Chevrolet was later cited for failure to yield. We hope the injured driver gets the treatment necessary for a full recovery.
Failure To Yield Accidents In Utah
