CEDAR TOWN — Police say a two-vehicle collision in Cedar City on Thursday morning was caused by one of the drivers not yielding while turning left.
The incident, which was reported shortly after 9 a.m., involved a white Chevrolet Equinox SUV and a silver Toyota SUV that collided at the intersection of 200 North and 1400 West.
Cedar City Police Officer Evan Pettit told Cedar City News the driver of the Chevrolet had just exited Interstate 15 and was attempting to turn left onto 200 north westbound when his vehicle struck the driver’s side of the southbound Toyota, which was crossing the intersection toward the I-15 on-ramp.
No injuries were reported.
“Everyone is fine. No one was transported,” Pettit said, adding that in addition to the only driver in each vehicle, the Chevrolet was also carrying a small child as a passenger.
The driver of the Chevrolet was cited for not giving in, Pettit added.
Traffic in the area was disrupted for approximately 30 minutes while the scene was cleared. Drivers were unable to turn left due to an eastbound lane closure.
Coincidentally, visible in the background at the crash site was a Subway restaurant sign that read “Turn left to eat right.”
The Chevrolet sustained extensive front end damage and was towed off the scene. The Toyota, which had minor to moderate side damage, appeared to be at least drivable. However, it was also towed.
