Utah Supreme Court rules injured trooper can't sue
UTAH — Under the "professional rescuer" rule, a highway trooper who was injured while responding to an accident can't sue the driver at fault, the Utah Supreme Court has ruled.
The plaintiff was struck by a vehicle while retrieving hazard flares. He was responding to a rollover accident that allegedly resulted from the defendant's negligent high-speed driving in winter conditions.
