St. George, UT (September 30, 2021) – A collision involving three sport utility vehicles that took place near Dixie High School on Wednesday, September 29th afternoon left one person injured.
The accident occurred at about 3:00 p.m. at the intersection of 400 East and 700 South.
Reports show it involved three SUVs, each of which was driven by an older woman who was also the sole occupant.
The vehicles included a white 2019 Honda CR-V driven by a 63-year-old woman, a 2016 silver Ford Edge driven by a 64-year-old woman, and a 2010 white Subaru Forester driven by a 76-year-old woman.
Officials said that the Edge was heading eastbound on 700 South when it rear-ended the Honda, causing it to strike the Subaru.
The Honda was crushed in the middle and sustained the most damage. The front and rear of the vehicle were partly damaged.
The driver of the Honda was taken by Gold Cross Ambulance to St. George Regional Hospital with a hand injury.
The driver of the Ford was issued a citation for following too closely.
