2 Hospitalized after Cedar City Three-Vehicle Crash on SR 56 

Cedar City, Utah (October 1, 2019) – Two people were injured in a rear-end crash Monday evening in Cedar City, a local news source reported.

The crash occurred shortly after 6:00 p.m. on September 30, on state Route 56 at 2150 West, east of Cove Drive.

Police said a male juvenile was driving a white Ford Fusion, with two other juvenile passengers, eastbound when he reached traffic that had backed up in a construction zone.

The Fusion then rear-ended a Toyota Scion with two occupants. The impact caused the Scion to hit a Toyota Corolla before coming to rest on the opposite side of the roadway.

A passenger in the Scion was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

One of the two passengers in the Fusion was treated at the scene for a cut on his hand.

The Fusion and the Scion had to be towed away from the scene.

The Fusion driver was cited for following too closely.

An investigation into the crash is underway.

We wish the injured victims quick recovery.
