One deputy was following another to the crash when one of them made a U-turn at the top of a hill in his patrol car. The other deputy didn't see the vehicle coming, and slid into it.

Lt. Chris Bertram, Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office: "The other patrol car came over the crest of the hill, didn't see him in time, very slick situation here on U-111, was unable to stop, and struck his car."
