OGDEN, Utah (AP) - A memorial service will be held Wednesday at Weber State University in Ogden for a Utah state trooper who was fatally injured when he was struck by a car while on duty.

The service for 32-year-old Eric Ellsworth will be held 11 a.m. at the Dee Event Center, with burial following at the Brigham City Cemetery.

Ellsworth died Wednesday at Intermountain Medical Center in Murray after being hit late Nov. 18 while attempting to slow traffic in Garland in Box Elder County because of a problem with a power line.

A procession took his body to Ogden on Friday.

Ellsworth was struck by a car driven by a 16-year-old girl after he stepped out of his patrol vehicle to warn a truck driver about sagging power lines.
