A man and woman were behind bars after a high-speed police chase ended with a crash in southwest Salt Lake County early Thursday morning.
West Jordan police Sgt. Dan Roberts said the chase began at 7800 S. Redwood Road, where police say the woman driver blew through a red light. The ensuing pursuit wound through residential areas and eventually onto Bangerter Highway, where the car ended up going the wrong way.
Police used a "PIT maneuver" (where a pursuing officer abruptly turns into the suspect vehicle, forcing it off the road) and the car crashed into an embankment near 13800 South in Draper at 2:41 a.m.
