SALT LAKE COUNTY — A Utah Highway Patrol Trooper was stopped to investigate a crash on I-80 Saturday night when his vehicle was struck by a vehicle that lost control in the slick and snowy conditions.
Sgt. Nathan Croft was dispatched to a wreck on I-80 near mile marker 106 around 6 p.m. on Saturday, where an SUV traveling too fast for the winter weather lost control and crashed into the barrier. After Croft arrived and left his vehicle to investigate, a second vehicle lost control and slid into the patrol car.
Croft saw the vehicle sliding out of control and was able to move clear. He was not hit or injured.
