KEARNS – One person is in critical condition and another arrested after a fight quickly escalated Saturday morning.

Two male teenagers got into an argument about an unknown issue at 5600 West and Townsend Way (4810 South) just before 4 a.m. Saturday.

The fight escalated quickly and one teen got into his car and allegedly hit the other teen multiple times with his vehicle before he fled the scene with a female passenger.

The teen who fled reportedly rolled his car a few blocks away. The female passenger remained injured on scene as the suspect fled through nearby fields.

The suspect, identified as 18-year-old Angelo Gonzalo Ginori, was tracked down and bit a short time later by a police K9 behind Herriman High School.

The victim hit by the vehicle was transported to the hospital in critical condition and the female passenger was also transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

Ginori was arrested on charges of attempted homicide.
