ST. GEORGE, Utah — A 21-year-old man has died after a single-vehicle crash in St. George.

The crash happened in the area of 100 South and Bluff Street around 8:15 p.m. Wednesday.

“Witnesses reported the vehicle had been driving erratically just prior to the crash,” stated a press release Thursday from the St. George Police Department.

Police say the car had been traveling northbound on Bluff Street when it crossed over into the southbound lanes and crashed into the culvert that is the driveway into Spilsbury Mortuary.

No other vehicles or pedestrians were hit.

“The white sedan was driven by a 21-year-old male who was extricated from the vehicle and transported to SGRH with significant injuries,” stated the release.

He was immediately taken into surgery, but afterwards, he passed away.

Police say speed and no seatbelt appear to be contributing factors to the man’s injuries.

His identity has not been released at this time.

“We implore you to slow down, wear your seat belt, put your phone and other distractions away while behind the wheel, and never drive impaired,” concluded the release.
