St. George, UT (May 08, 2022) – Two unrelated car accidents involving a total of three vehicles and one injury took place just around the corner from one another on Sunset Boulevard on Sunday, May 8th.
An official from the St. George Fire Department said the fire crews were dispatched following reports of an accident in the area of Dixie Drive and Sunset Boulevard at about 12:50 p.m.
Upon their arrival, they found a young female driver involved in a single-vehicle accident. According to sources, her Honda Civic had veered off the roadway, jumped a curb, and then crashed into a tree in front of a nearby Mcdonald’s. She was the sole occupant of the vehicle and was unharmed during the incident.
Just moments later, a head-on collision took place on Sunset Boulevard in front of Walgreens. Fire crews were redirected to the head-on accidents after being informed that one of the victims was unconscious.
Police vehicles and orange emergency cones formed a perimeter around the accident as traffic divert off of Sunset Boulevard. Additional fire engines and an ambulance were also on the scene of the second crash between a 1992 Nissan Fairlady Z and a Toyota Corolla.
Police rerouted traffic around the area while fire crews worked to remove the doors of a Toyota Corolla and extricated a female victim from the vehicle.
According to rescuers, one patient involved in the head-on accident was up and mobile. The other required extrication and, upon being freed, was unresponsive and immediately transported by Gold Cross ambulance.
Details about the events leading up to the head-on crash have not been released because the investigation is still pending.
Two wreckers were called to tow the vehicles, remove the shattered glass that was scattered across the roadway, and dispose of the sawed-off car door.
The current condition of the woman who was hospitalized is also unknown at this time.
If you were injured in a car accident, you most likely have a lot of important questions, such as: How are you going to pay your medical bills? How long will it take for you to fully recover? How much of your damages is your insurance going to cover?
A car accident is a frightening experience. To make things worse, insurers usually try to pressure victims into settling their claims as fast as possible. Preferably before you even understand the full scope of your injuries. It is important that you don’t let a greedy insurance company bully you into accepting a settlement offer that is nowhere near what you deserve.
