Investigation underway after video shows UHP vehicle driving into traffic

MORGAN COUNTY, Utah — A Utah Highway Patrol official says an investigation is underway after video shows one of its patrol cars driving into traffic.

The incident occurred over the holiday weekend on Trapper’s Loop in Morgan County.

In dashcam video posted to Facebook by Derek Wolthoff, a trooper is seen slowing down and slightly moving to their right in order to turn on the road. However, the UHP vehicle immediately begins the left turn without checking first on the traffic moving in the same direction.

The vehicle behind the trooper, presumably driven by Wolthoff, smashed into the UHP car, which then forces a pickup truck hauling a boat to swerve off the road and jackknife into a road barrier.

Following the accident, UHP posted a warning on its Facebook page for drivers to slow down and heed emergency lights, but Wolthoff’s video appears to show no time for him, or anyone else, to slow before the trooper made their turn.

“So grateful for all of my race experience to save our lives. It happens in a blink of an eye. Everyone walked away without injury. I literally have no idea what that officer was thinking,” wrote Wolthoff.

A UHP spokesperson told FOX 13 that an outside agency is investigating the incident while they also perform their own internal review.

(A previous version of this story referenced a social media post that was inadvertently attributed to the Utah Highway Patrol, when it was, in fact, posted by the Mountain Green Fire Protection District. That post was the one that has been removed.)

Family hits Boston traffic, baby born inside vehicle on Southeast Expressway

the boy’s name is Xavier and he decided to come on the Southeast expressway in Milton. A few weeks early. A few weeks and a few exits early firefighter john Wells holding baby Xavier earlier this afternoon, Just minutes after he was born, Stoughton family stuck in traffic on 93 northbound on the way to the hospital. It’s a lot of chaos on the expressway, especially on a day to day, won’t have a lot of traffic logistically getting ambulances out to the highway can be busy, it can take some time. The couple made the decision to pull over shortly after dad delivered the baby on his own in the breakdown lane before emergency crews arrived as a parent, I think any parent just wants to know uh the baby’s healthy and that moms healthy so that’s the end result. You know, we got what we needed. Then an ambulance from South Shore Hospital happened to be driving by and helped with cutting and clamping the umbilical cord. Firefighters then brought the baby to a brewster ambulance, which was also nearby. Then loaded Mom on the stretcher, taking them both to Beth Israel deaconess Medical Center thumbs up in a pat on the back. For dad for a job well done all around. It was mom’s third. But for the dad, having a boy on Father’s Day weekends, pretty cool again. Mom and the baby are said to be doing just fine tonight. We’re in Longwood. I’m Peter Iliopoulos, WCVB News Center Five. Okay.

We’re told the baby’s father delivered the infant inside their vehicle, which pulled into the breakdown lane near Exit 11 in Milton Thursday morning. The family said Baby Zavier was due in July, but his mother went into labor early at their Stoughton home and the family got stuck in traffic on their way to the hospital. “He decided to come on the Southeast Expressway in Milton a few weeks early,” firefighter John Wells, who met the family along the side of the highway, said. Wells said baby Zavier was crying, had good colors and appeared healthy.”It was mom’s third, but for the dad having a boy on Father’s Day weekend, that’s pretty cool,” Wells said. An ambulance arrived at the scene a short time later and brought both mom and baby Zavier to Beth Israel Medical Center in Boston, where both were doing well Thursday night.
