JUAB COUNTY, Utah -- The Juab County Attorney released more details Friday regarding the pursuit of an alleged cop-killer that began with the death of Sgt. Cory Wride.

The two videos show the final moments of the chase from different vehicle's perspectives. The videos provided to FOX 13 News did not have audio attached to the files.

In the first video, the suspect's vehicle can be seen crossing the median and moving into oncoming traffic. Officials said the suspect intentionally hit a minivan during the pursuit. The move to the median occurs at about 3:45 into the first video.

The second video offers a better view of the vehicle moving into the median (at about 30 seconds into the video), but the angle does not provide visuals of the vehicle in oncoming traffic. In both videos, officers with rifles can be seen leaving a truck at the end of the chase.

The suspect in the chase was shot and killed by officers, and the shooting was ruled justified.
