St. George, UT (February 27, 2019) – Around 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, the St. George Police Department responded to an automobile accident involving four vehicles.
The accident occurred along the southbound side of River Road, south of 900 East. According to St. George Police Sgt.

The chain of rear-end collisions resulted in minor injuries to the passenger of the van, caused by the deployment of the vehicle’s airbags. As a result, the passenger was transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center by Gold Cross Ambulance for medical treatment. The drivers and passengers in the three other vehicles sustained minor injuries but refused transportation to the hospital. The driver of the van was cited for following too close.
