VIDEO: Hurricane Police and Utah Highway Patrol officers responded to a crash involving a Hurricane police officer on state Route 9 in Hurricane Monday afternoon.
Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Shawn Judd said officers were called to a crash involving the officer and another vehicle at the intersection of State Street or SR-9 and 700 West.
The officer was stopped at the intersection traveling southbound on 700 West when his light turned green and he proceeded forward through the intersection, Judd said.
A female driver of a passenger car heading west on State Street in Hurricane did not stop at the red light in her direction and hit the Hurricane patrol truck on the front wheel, Judd said.
Judd said an independent witness confirmed that the officer did have a green light and hadn’t proceeded into the intersection until it had turned green.
