ST. GEORGE — A 21-year-old man has died from injuries he suffered after crashing his car on Bluff Street in St. George on Wednesday night, police said.

The incident happened around 8 p.m. at 110 S. Bluff Street. Police say witnesses had reported seeing the vehicle "driving erratically" just before the crash.

The driver was northbound on Bluff Street, then crossed into the southbound lanes and crashed into a culvert, which is a cement structure used for channeling water, in front of Spilsbury Mortuary, police said.

The driver, whose name has not yet been released, was not wearing a seat belt and had to be extricated from the vehicle. He was taken to St. George Regional Hospital with "significant injuries," went into surgery and later died, police said in a statement.

"Speed and not wearing a seat belt appear to be contributing factors to his injuries," police said. "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."
