Unified Police Department officers had two known gang members behind bars Wednesday, the day after a brief high-speed chase ended with a smashed parked car and collision with a tree.
UPD Lt. Justin Hoyal said the incident began about 11 p.m. Tuesday when an officer attempted to pull over a suspected stolen car near 5000 South and 4000 West in Taylorsville.
"There was a short pursuit. The suspect vehicle hit a parked car and then a tree at 3960 W. Ridgecrest Drive (4800 South), where the suspects attempted to flee on foot. Officers quickly apprehended them," Hoyal said.
