CLEARFIELD, Utah —Utah Highway Patrol confirmed that police were pursuing a suspect on northbound I-15 Wednesday evening, resulting in the closure of a part of I-15 after the suspect’s vehicle rolled near 650 North in Clearfield.

According to UHP, several people called to complain about a reckless driver on northbound I-15. A UHP Trooper intercepted the vehicle, but the driver did not stop, leading the trooper on a chase.

However, the chase only lasted for a few miles, before the suspect’s vehicle rolled, causing northbound I-15 to shut down around the area of 650 North Clearfield in Davis County.

UHP said the driver was transported to the hospital. Officials believe he was under the influence.

Troopers don’t yet know what caused the car to roll.
