ST. GEORGE, Utah — A crash in St. George Tuesday afternoon sent three teens to the hospital, including one by helicopter, after an SUV carrying seven juveniles rolled multiple times, according to a report from St. George News.
Shortly after 2:30 p.m., emergency personnel were dispatched to a single-vehicle rollover reported off of Navajo Drive near where the road divides into Hollow Washington Road, a rugged area approximately 10 miles east of Apex Mine Road. A Mercy Air helicopter was also dispatched to the scene to assist, St. George Fire Chief Robert Stoker said.
Responders arrived the find the Toyota FJ Cruiser on its side and three of the seven juvenile occupants injured. Two of the teens were ground transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center for evaluation and treatment, while a 16-year-old girl was flown to the same hospital.
The teens' injuries turned out to be non-life-threatening Stoker said, while the four juveniles that remained at the scene sustained only minor injuries and declined transport before being turned over to their parents a short while later.
