4 hurt in St. George rollover crash caused by impaired driver 

ST. GEORGE, UT – Four people were hurt after their red Toyota SUV overturned after getting struck by an impaired driver around 5 p.m. Saturday.

This collision occurred at the East Port Pierce Drive and Bloomington Hills Drive intersection, St. George News reported. 

St. George Police arrived and saw that a blue Ford Explorer sustained significant damage and was blocking the road while the red Toyota SUV was flipped over on its roof. They said the collision happened when the driver of a blue Ford Explorer, 44-year-old Scott Russell Hendrickson, failed to yield to the Toyota. 

The occupants of the Toyota were all hospitalized at St. George Regional Hospital. One suffered a significant head injury that required stitches. 

At this time, there has been no official word on the occupants’ conditions. It appears Hendrickson was unharmed. 

Police discovered that Hendrickson was impaired after conducting sobriety tests. Hendrickson denied having any alcohol in his system. They later arrested him and booked him into jail at the Washington County Purgatory Correctional Facility.

Hendrickson was “charged with DUI and three counts of operating a motor vehicle resulting in injury.” These are considered misdemeanors. In addition, he was faced with a “one-third-degree felony count of negligently operating a motor vehicle resulting in serious bodily injury.”

Hendrickson was initially arrested without bail, but that has changed as his bail is now set at $10,000.
