Technically the Trooper is at fault, but being at fault for the wreck and a traffic violation by the trucker are two different things. The trooper no matter what has to ensure he's merging safely, I'll bet he was still watching the red car to make sure it wasn't trying to pass again. However the other vehicles should have still slowed and stayed behind the trooper with his lights and siren going. The trucker is going to lose it. Utah law states you can't pass an emergency vehicle with is lights and sirens on.
