St. George, UT (February 03, 2021) – Police were called to the scene of an accident on State Route 18 when a supposedly illegal U-turn caused a two-car accident on Sunday, January 31st at about 12:30 p.m.
Reports show that a gray Honda Accord was traveling northbound along State Route 18 when it appeared as though he intended to make a righthand turn onto East Sumac Drive. For reasons that have yet to be determined, he instead tried to make a southbound U-turn.
While making the turn, he entered the path of an oncoming white Ford F-150 pick-up truck. The driver of the pick-up swerved to try to circumvent the collision but still struck the Honda on the rear driver’s side.
The Honda’s driver, a 19-year-old male, complained of pain in his shoulder and chest. His 19-year-old female passenger was going in and out of consciousness and was complaining of lower back pain. Both were transported via ambulance to St. George Regional Hospital.
The truck driver, a male in his 50s, complained of chest pain following the crash and was airlifted to St. George Regional.
