MESA, AZ - A DPS officer was injured Monday morning after being involved in a crash on eastbound US 60.
DPS spokesman Carrick Cook said, an officer was finishing up a traffic stop with his emergency lights on near the US 60 and Val Vista, when a pickup truck hit the patrol car and rolled over.
The driver of the pickup and the DPS officer both sustained non-life threatening injuries.
Cook said this is an example of why the “move over law” is so important. Cook also said distracted driving may have been a factor in the crash.
