“He was on patrol duty driving southbound at about 150 N. Hwy. 89,” said North Salt Lake Police Chief Craig Black. “The other driver was going northbound and for some unknown reason crossed the center lane and hit him just about head on. Both cars sustained substantial damage and the officer was transported to the University of Utah Medical Center.”
