A Utah Highway Patrol Trooper was hit and injured while sitting inside a patrol pickup truck during a traffic stop Tuesday afternoon.
UHP Cpl. Todd Johnson said the crash occurred at about 3:12 p.m. on Interstate 15 near University Parkway in Orem.
The trooper was pulled over on the southbound lane while conducting a stop on a driver when another vehicle lost control, hit a concrete wall and rolled into the UHP pickup. The trooper sustained minor injuries. The Utah County Sheriff's Office will handle the investigation, Johnson said.
