St. George, UT – Sunrise Causes 3 Car Crash on SR 9Utah Legal News
St. George, UT (May 07, 2019) – A multi-vehicle accident took place on Monday, May 6th that affected traffic headed eastbound on State Street. The accident is reported to have occurred at approximately 7:00 in the morning.
Officers from the Hurricane Police Department along with other emergency responders arrived at the scene of a collision that involved semi truck colliding with three passenger cars at the intersection of State Street and N 3700 West.
According to initial statements, the tractor-trailer was traveling east on State Street when the cars in front of him began to slow down for an upcoming red light. Due to the sunrise cresting the horizon, he was unable to see the vehicles that were on the road directly in front of him. The truck crashed into the back of a silver Hyundai Elantra and two black Toyota Camrys. The Hyundai and the semi both ran off the road as a result of the collision.
The driver of the Hyundai received emergency medical transport to Dixie Regional Medical Center where he received treatment for injuries that were classified as non-life threatening.
No one else in this four-car pile-up was hurt.
We wish a full and speedy recovery to the driver who was injured in this accident.
