A hit-and-run crash in Cottonwood Heights ended moments later with the suicide of the driver suspected of leaving the scene of the crash.
Cottonwood Heights police Sgt. Mark Askerlund said the 33-year-old man was believed to have been drinking before his Honda CRV rear-ended another car about 5:45 p.m. Tuesday.
The man sped away from the scene of the crash in the 6700 South block of Wasatch Boulevard. Police, who received his license plate number from witnesses, were on the way to his home when they received another call of a gunshot at the same address.
