<b>Three car crash...</b><br>
A crash involving three vehicles closes the southbound lanes of Main Street for about one hour on Friday, Nov. 18. Utah Highway Patrol investigators say Berverly Holdorf, 73, was driving a Kia Forte north on Main Street when she allegedly ran a red light at 100 South and Main, broadsiding a Ford Edge driven by Marilyn Bunge, 81, who was traveling west across 100 South. The force of the impact pushed Bunge’s vehicle into a southbound Ford F150 driven by Wesley Shannon, 45. Bunge and Holdorf were transported to Moab Regional Hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the crash. Shannon was uninjured, according to the UHP report. Investigators said that approximately 20 minutes before the crash a caller had reported the Kia “driving recklessly” headed south on U.S. 191. Officers had responded to the area but were unable to locate the vehicle, officials said. The UHP is investigating Holdorf for allegedly driving under the influence, according to the UHP report.        Photo courtesy of Utah Highway Patrol
