Head-On Collision Sends Four to Hospital


A head-on collision Wednesday evening at the intersection of 260 North and Dixie Drive sent four people to Dixie Regional Medical Center.

Lieutenant Giles with the St. George Police Department told SUN News that a small pickup truck was traveling northbound when the driver for unknown reasons crossed the center line and struck a mini van.

The mini van was waiting to merge into the southbound lanes of Dixie Drive when it was struck, deploying the airbags. Three ambulances from Dixie Ambulance Services responded and transported three adults and one child to the hospital with unknown injuries.

The accident is under investigation and Giles stated that it appears that safety restraints were in use in both vehicles which greatly helped decrease the seriousness of the injuries. Lieutenant Giles reminds drivers to wear seatbelts because seatbelts save lives.
