SARDINE CANYON, Utah - The Utah Department of Public Safety released video of the eleventh Utah Highway Patrolman who has been hit by a car since Jan. 1.

Sgt. Cade Brenchley, a second-generation trooper and 13-year veteran, spoke for the first time since being hit by a car Sunday in Sardine Canyon.

Sgt. Brenchley was responding to multiple slide-offs in the canyon when the car hit him from behind.

The husband and father of four suffered broken ribs and a broken scapula and is expected to recover.

"Our department is thankful to the multiple bystanders who came to the aide of Sgt. Brenchley after he was struck," Utah DPS said.

The dash camera video shows many of those who stopped to help Sgt. Brenchley including some of his cousins who are Cache Valley first responders.
