Motorcyclist hospitalized after left turn crash with car

ST. GEORGE, UT – A motorcyclist was sent to a hospital after his Harley Davidson was struck by the driver of a blue Mazda 3 turning left from Red Cliffs Drive onto 2450 East. 

This collision happened before 1 p.m. Wednesday, according to St. George News. Police said the Mazda driver “was trying to get out of the intersection” when the motorcyclist came out swiftly or because the driver didn’t see him approaching. 

The impact caused the motorcycle to come tumbling down and leak out fuel as well. 

As indicated in the photo, the Mazda’s passenger door side was struck, sustaining heavy damage to the door, the side mirror, and the windshield. The driver, the sole occupant, was unharmed. 

Officials shut down eastbound Red Cliffs for approximately 45 minutes and have reopened it since.
