Two people received minor injuries after a vehicle crash on I-15 Tuesday morning.

The crash involved three vehicles, including a Utah Highway Patrol vehicle.

Officers said Trooper Andy Prescott was investigating a one car accident that happened on southbound I-15 near milepost 306 when the accident happened. They said a car made an unsafe lane change across three lanes of traffic in front of a truck. They said the truck was unable to stop, and hit the back of the car, which caused the car to crash into Prescott’s UHP vehicle.

Prescott was out of the vehicle during the crash, and was uninjured. The driver of the car and the truck were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
