SALT LAKE CITY — Two Utah Highway Patrol troopers are ok after being involved in two separate crashes yesterday.

UHP Sgt. Nick Street says that one troopers car was rear-ended on I-215 near Redwood Rd after a parole fugitive was fleeing from police.  Police say he was taken into custody.

Around the same time, another trooper was side-swiped on I-15 near 31st Street in Ogden. Sgt. Street says the driver told troopers that they had low blood sugar and were struggling to stay in their lane.

That driver was cited for failing to maintain a lane.

Both of those troopers are going to be ok.
