Salt Lake Co. rollover crash followed by police chase

PARLEY’S CANYON, UT – A police chase in Summit County later prompted a rollover crash in Salt Lake County Tuesday. 

According to ABC 4, the Summit County Sheriff’s Office tried to pull over a silver SUV at SR 224 and Bear Cub before 1 a.m.. However, the driver did not listen, returned to the car, and took off, which began the police pursuit. 

When the driver approached a corner in the area of I-80 and I-215, the SUV collided with the median before overturning and crashing into another part of I-215 around 2:30 a.m.

A preliminary report revealed that two of the SUV occupants had several warrants for their arrest. Officials also found methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, and alleged stolen U.S. mail in the automobile. 

The impact of the collision caused two women and one man to be thrown from the SUV. In addition, the driver was trapped and extricated by first responders. All occupants were transported to a hospital for serious injuries. 

Both directions of I-215 closed but have reopened since.
