WEST VALLEY CITY — A Unified Police officer was home Sunday after being injured in a car accident while assisting another law enforcement agency, UPD Lt. Justin Hoyal said.

The officer's car, one of two police vehicles heading north on 4000 West, was struck on its side about 3 p.m. Saturday by a car driven by a 17-year-old female traveling west on 6200 South.

The officer, whose name wasn't released, was taken to the hospital in serious condition, but later released.

The teenage driver escaped unharmed, but was cited for failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.
