(KSL) A Utah Highway Patrol trooper was injured Monday afternoon after responding to a car accident and subsequently being hit and pinned under a car.
Trooper David Schiers arrived at the scene of the initial accident about 3 p.m., where he discovered a white Ford passenger car had collided with some cable barriers alongside the freeway. Because of poor weather, the car had hydroplaned and gone into the center median, police said.
While Schiers was investigating the accident and waiting for the Cedar City Fire Department to arrive and extricate the victims, a black BMW hydroplaned and collided with the Ford, which then hit Schiers, according to UHP Lt. Steve Esplin.
