Collision sends man to hospital
Yesterday Katie, Connor, Garrett, Abby, and Katie's friend Kristin got in a horrible car wreck right by the mall in St. George. Here is the newspaper report.

ST. GEORGE- A male driver was transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center on Tuesday following a head-on collision that damaged three cars at the intersection of Red Cliffs and Mall drives. The man was driving a white Honda Civic east on Red Cliffs Drive when his car collided with a gray Ford Focus driven by Katie Sullivan, of Cedar City. The westbound Focus was turning left onto Mall Drive from Red Cliffs."I was in the turning lane, and the light turned yellow, " Sullivan said. "I saw the white car ... I guess it sped up to beat the red light. "Officer Tyrell Bangerter said no citations have been issued in the accident. "It's still under investigation until I can talk to the other driver." he said Bangerter said he would take measurments of the skid marks to help determine what happened. "I've got the scene marked with orange paint, but where it (traffic) is kind of busy right now, I'll wait until it kind of dies down" he said. Sullivan, her friend and three cousins from Salt Lake City were on their way to the Red Cliffs Mall after spending the after spending the afternoon at Sand Hollow Reservoir. "The guy in the other car- he hit his head, ...He was bleeding a little bit from a cut," Kristen Marchant, one of Sullivan's passengers said. "I saw the airbags go off and that;s all I remember," said Abigail Chamberlain. Connor Peck said he burned his bare feet on the pavement after getting out of the car, but that no one in the Focus was seriously injured beyond "seltbelt burn." Becky Richards, of St. George, said she was in line behind the Focus at the stoplight and that her car sustained scratches in the accident. "SOme debris hit our hood. It's like his (the white car's) toolbox exploded," she said. "All of sudden you saw her (Sullivan go through the light and then all of a sudden there were two spinning vehicles."It was a scary, scary accident! But thank goodness everyone is ok.

Katie is at the doctors right now because of her foot, but everyone else is fine. Connor ego is hurt more than anything. He can't believe that they would put what he said about his feet in the newspaper.

Just goes to show you how desperate those small towns are for news!! Actually, I think it is a very good thing when Connor's feet are the big news of the day.
