OGDEN, Utah-- One man suspected of stealing a truck Friday is now behind bars, while another suspect remains on the loose.

Officers said an Ogden man was warming up his truck before taking his kids to the store, only to see the suspects get in the truck and drive away.

Police spotted the truck and tried to pull it over, but the suspect ran through a red light and hit another car. The truck then flipped over and crashed into a tree.

Police say they arrested one suspect, but there was another one in the truck who got away.

Police describe the missing suspect as a white male in his 20's.

Angela Beatty has set up a fund to help the family repair the damage to the truck. If you would like to donate, you can do so at the Golden West Credit Union in South Ogden. The account is under Dan and Angela Beatty Donation Recovery.
