SANDY, Utah -- A Sandy Police officer headed to a rollover crash was involved in an accident Saturday afternoon.

The officer was going south on State Street with lights and sirens active and attempted to turn at the intersection at 106th South.

A pickup truck traveling eastbound T-boned the patrol car.
