TAYLORSVILLE, Utah  A Taylorsville police officer who allegedly ran a red light and crashed into a Tooele man's car, killing him, was attempting to join a pursuit, Salt Lake County Deputy District Attorney Sandi Johnson confirmed Monday.

For months Taylorsville police, citing an ongoing investigation, have declined to say why officer Joseph James Corbett went through an intersection with lights and sirens activated Feb. 7.
