ST. GEORGE — An 86-year-old woman caused a crash when she drove into oncoming traffic, then stopped and backed across several lanes of road, police said.

Officers said the woman was driving on 700 South near 400 East on Monday, when she turned into a lane of oncoming traffic.

"She was going into traffic, so she stopped and backed across two lanes of traffic to get going right again," St. George Police Sgt. Craig Harding said Tuesday.

Police said a couple of cars swerved to avoid hitting her, but the woman ended up crashing into a car. No injuries were reported in the crash.

"The officer could see she was disoriented and felt she really shouldn't be driving," said Harding.

The woman was cited for improper lane travel, and her name has been sent to the driver's license division to have her license status re-evaluated.
