Provo, UT (ABC4) – A DWR was injured after nearly being struck by a vehicle.

According to UHP, slick icy roads caused a traffic backup which caused for only one lane toward Heber City to be open. The officer was outside his vehicle when the vehicle was struck by passing traffic. He was able to jump out of the way before being struck as well.
