SALT LAKE CITY -- An investigation is under way after a Unified Police Department car slammed into the back of another vehicle on I-215.

It happened late Wednesday night on the east I-215 beltway near 3900 South.

A state trooper said both vehicles were in the right-hand lane when they crashed.

The officer was not injured, but the woman driving the other vehicle had to be cut out of her car. She was taken to a hospital with a head injury but is expected to be fine.

Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Bryan Gardner said investigators don't know if the officer was trying to pull the woman over, if his emergency lights were on, or if either driver was speeding.

Investigators will hand over any evidence to the county attorney's office. Prosecutors will decide whether charges are warranted.
