SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A Utah Highway Patrol trooper has been hurt after his car was rear ended on Interstate 15.
Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Cameron Roden says the trooper was conducting a traffic stop on the right shoulder of southbound I-15 near South Salt Lake early Friday when a car drifted off the road.
The trooper was inside the car when it was hit from behind about 1 a.m., The Salt Lake Tribune reported on its Web site Friday.
Roden says the trooper was taken to a hospital in serious condition and was later upgraded to fair.
Roden says the car the trooper had pulled over wasn't affected by the crash.
