Graphic video: Utah police release footage of trooper getting hit by car


Recommended Posts



The Utah Department of Public Safety has released footage of a trooper who was hit by a vehicle on Sunday in snowy conditions.

According to the agency, Sgt. Cade Brenchley was struck from behind by the vehicle in Sardine Canyon in northern Utah while he was responding to multiple vehicles sliding off the roadways.

Brenchley suffered broken ribs and a broken scapula. He was transported to Logan Regional Hospital.

"The 13 year UHP veteran is well respected and known in his community where he serves as a local soccer coach," the Utah Department of Public Safety said in a release. "Sgt. Brenchley has previously been involved in delivering twins on the side of the interstate and helping save a burn victim in a car crash. He spearheads our northern Utah public information and education efforts and works with local high schools. Most importantly, he is a husband and father of four."

"Our department is thankful to the multiple bystanders who came to the aide of Sgt. Brenchley after he was struck," the agency said. "The dash cam video shows many people on the scene who stopped to offer aide and called for help on his car radio. Some of the Cache Valley first responders included three of Sgt. Brenchley’s cousins."
