The collision occurred on the westbound highway at milepost 66, west of South 1st Street/Midvale Road, in the city’s southwest corner.

According to the WSP, the trooper’s marked car was parked on the right shoulder of I-82 when it was hit from behind. Photos captured at the scene show considerable damage to the vehicle’s backend.
