ST. GEORGE, UT – Four were hurt after a driver of a white Utility truck ran a stop sign at and struck the passenger side of the red Cadillac SRX4 around 6 p.m. Tuesday.
The collision took place at the South River Road and East Commerce Drive intersection, according to St. George News.
Officials said the utility truck had two Hispanic men. They said the driver fled the scene on foot but returned twenty minutes later and asked medics to treat his injured arm.
It appears the utility truck driver and passenger was not hospitalized, while three adults and one child from the red Cadillac were transported to St. George Regional Hospital for unspecified injuries.
Impairment could have played a role in this collision as first responders found an open bottle of Corona beer in the utility truck. This detail as well as other circumstances leading up to the crash are under investigation.
The red Cadallic had a large indent on the passenger side, while the truck sustained a significant front-end driver.
Law enforcement has not specified pending charges for the truck driver.
