WASHINGTON, Utah — A driver was taken into custody near Washington for reckless driving after crashing into at least five vehicles Tuesday afternoon.

Utah Highway Patrol said the incident began in Arizona and ended on Interstate 15 near milepost 17.

The driver of a black passenger car was driving recklessly and tried to split between cars on the freeway, UHP said.

At least four cars were hit on the Utah side, while one car was hit on the Arizona side, UHP reported.

Officials said in talking with the driver, they didn't realize any crashes had even occurred.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety is coming to assist with the incident, UHP explained.

The identity of the driver, as well as information on if anybody was hurt, was not made immediately available.
