2 adults, baby hospitalized after Cedar City T-bone crash

CEDAR CITY, UT – A T-bone style collision at 4200 West and SR-56 sent a man and woman, and a baby to a hospital Tuesday afternoon, St. George News reported. 

This crash happened after 3:30 p.m. when a driver of a white Hyundai Sonata headed south on 4200 West and, for reasons unclear, turned in front of a white Chevrolet 2500 pickup truck.

There is no traffic signal at this intersection, however, drivers traveling on 4200 West must yield to motorists driving on SR 56. So when both vehicles collided, it created a T-bone-style crash, where both vehicles sustained significant damage and were towed away from the wreck site. 

Cedar City fire crews had to disconnect fuel cell batteries from the Hyundai hybrid model to prevent the vehicle from catching fire. 

The Chevrolet driver, the sole occupant, was unharmed. The Hyundai driver and the passenger with him, a woman, sustained minor injuries. In addition, the baby with them was unharmed. The woman and baby were taken to Cedar City Hospital for evaluation and the man was taken there for treatment of his moderate injuries. 

It is not immediately clear if the Hyundai driver will be cited for failing to yield to oncoming traffic.
