Cedar City Police Sgt. Tim Bonzo said the incident happened around 4:30 p.m. at the intersection of Bulldog Road and 2400 North.

The boy who was riding the ATV was heading east on 2400 North behind two other teenagers who were riding an off-road motorcycle, Bonzo said. Although the two motorcyclists crossed Bulldog Road safely, the ATV was struck by a Northbound Ford Explorer, he said.

“We’re not sure what happened or the speeds, but they collided in the middle of the intersection,” Bonzo said, adding the impact knocked the boy off the ATV.

“He had a helmet,” Bonzo said. “He was taken to the hospital. We are not sure of his injuries.

Neither the driver nor the passenger of the Explorer was injured, Bonzo said. The vehicle sustained minor damage to the front but was still roadworthy, he added.

During this time, the ATV sustained significant damage, including a broken wheel. He was loaded onto a trailer to be removed from the scene.

Bonzo said at the scene that no citation had been issued, pending further investigation.

“At the moment, it’s still under review,” he said.
