St. George Police Officer Tiffany Mitchell said a red car driven by an elderly man was turning left, or westbound, out of the Speedway gas station parking lot on Sunset. The motorcycle was heading east when it was struck by the vehicle.

Mitchell confirmed to St. George News that the motorcyclist died after being taken to hospital by Gold Cross Ambulance.

The accident happened in front of the Sunset Plaza shopping center, just before the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and North Dixie Downs Road. A Lins employee told St. George News he was outside when the incident happened and he, along with other bystanders, called 911.

In a Facebook Live from the St. George, Utah, police department, Mitchell said the crash reconstruction team was on the scene investigating the crash, which delayed traffic for hours while the team was re-enacting the incident.

“We have a motorcycle against a vehicle…so as you can see behind me traffic is impacted,” Mitchell said in the video.
