UPD unit involved in crash on U-201

First Published Dec 12 2013 07:28 am • Last Updated Dec 12 2013 01:21 pm

A Unified Police vehicle was involved in a single-vehicle traffic accident Thursday morning.

UPD Lt. Justin Hoyal said the officer was "shaken up but otherwise unhurt" when his vehicle crashed into a traffic barrier about 6 a.m. on eastbound Highway 201 near 1150 West, or roughly halfway between Redwood Road and 9th West.

Hoyal said that since the crash involved a UPD officer, the Utah Highway Patrol would conduct the accident investigation.

UHP Sgt. Todd Royce said the cause had not been officially determined, but "we’re leaning toward fatigue" as a factor in the crash.
