Cedar City, UT – One Injured During Two-Truck Accident On SR-56

Cedar City, UT (June 03, 2021) – One person was transported to an area hospital and another was issued a citation after a collision between two vehicles on Wednesday, June 2nd on State Route 56 in Cedar City.

The accident, which happened at about 6:30 p.m., took place at the intersection of Cross Hollow Road/Aviation Way and SR-56, involved a Dodge Ram pick-up truck and a Chevrolet pick-up truck.

An official with the Cedar City Police Department stated that the driver of the Chevrolet had come to a stop facing southbound on Aviation Way and was attempting to make a lefthand turn onto eastbound SR-56 when the truck was hit almost head-on by a Dodge traveling across SR-56, northbound on Cross Hollow Road.

The driver of the Dodge, an adult male, was taken to Cedar City Hospital for treatment of injuries believed to be non-critical.

The driver of the Chevrolet, who was unharmed during the impact, was given a citation for failure to yield. 

The two drivers were the only occupants of each vehicle.

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

After being involved in a car accident, it is necessary for injured victims to secure legal representation as quickly as possible. To properly determine the cause of the accident and assign liability, it is important that the scene is investigated and witnesses are debriefed as soon as possible before people forget, memories shift, crucial evidence is destroyed or lost, and insurance carriers start working against you. 

Legal advocation from a reputable car accident attorney is critical in stopping the insurance company from taking advantage of you in your hour of need. It is not uncommon for their adjusters to force or trick vulnerable victims into agreeing to a settlement that is far less than they deserve in order to protect their bottom line, making you a victim for the second time.
