SALT LAKE CITY -- Two Utah politicians were involved in a violent collision Saturday, but it was all part of a planned event.

Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams and Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox participated in a heat at the derby held during the Salt Lake County Fair, and Cox's vehicle wound up on its roof. See the video above for the footage as well as comments from both Cox and McAdams.
