Woman in her 20s sent to hospital after crash near Utah Tech

ST. GEORGE, UT – Failing to yield to oncoming traffic was a contributing factor in a Tuesday afternoon crash in St. George. 

The collision happened before 1:45 p.m. near Utah Tech University, St. George News reported. A driver of a westbound white Subaru Outback, a member of the UTU track team, stopped at the stop sign at the corner of 600 South and 800 East. At the same time, a driver of a gray Kia Soul, also a track team member, was traveling west. 

The driver of the Subaru stopped and acknowledged her team member, but she did not slow down for traffic, entered the intersection, and collided with her teammate’s Kia. 

The impact caused the Kia to spin before flipping over, landing on the driver’s side. As seen in the photos, the Kial sustained some damage on the driver’s side and the passenger door behind the driver’s side, while the Subrau had some damage done to the front. 

Both women were unharmed. The Subaru driver was cited. The Kia driver, an unidentified woman in her 20s, was not hurt but was taken to a hospital as a precaution.
