PORTAGE, Utah – A Portage Fire Department vehicle was hit while crews responded to a crash on Interstate 15 near the Utah-Idaho border.
Officials with the Utah Highway Patrol said the original crash happened near milepost 398 in Box Elder County Thursday morning.
First responders said a car “slowed to 75 mph” as it passed the scene before losing control and hitting their vehicle head-on.
No injuries were reported in the crash and officials said road conditions were icy and it was snowing at the time of the crash.
“Luckily my friends get to go home to their kids today but this could have been a very different outcome had this happened two minutes sooner,” said Erin Bice, who posted about the crash on Facebook.
