MURRAY — A Utah Highway Patrol trooper was hit from behind Monday while trying to slow down traffic.
Just before 9:30 a.m., troopers were trying to slow traffic on the freeway while they attempted to direct a deer that was running loose on the road back into the foothills.
The trooper was slowing traffic on westbound I-215 as it turned to go southbound onto I-15, and was bumped from behind by another vehicle, said UHP Cpl. Todd Johnson.
Both vehicles were able to drive away from the scene and neither driver suffered serious injuries, he said.
Murray police are investigating the accident.
