Isn’t it ironic, don’t you think? Injury attorneys in Utah think so, when an alleged drunk driver struck a cruiser during a traffic stop for someone else allegedly driving under the influence. Thankfully the Salt Lake City police officer was uninjured when the other vehicle crashed into his cruiser.
The accident took place at 800 South and 1300 East. The officer called for backup when he pulled the first car over on suspicion of DUI. Both police cruisers were parked with their lights flashing when the second vehicle and alleged drunk driver struck the backup police cruiser from behind.
One police cruiser was totaled, while the other had serious damage. Both drivers were arrested on charges of driving under the influence. Injury attorneys in Utah urge drivers to use good judgment and not drink and drive.
If you have made the mistake of drinking and driving, a Utah attorney can help you with your DUI case.
