MILLCREEK, Utah — Three people were arrested Wednesday morning after police said they crashed their car into several vehicles during a pursuit in Millcreek.

Unified police said the car with the suspects sped off when an officer approached, dodging other police vehicles on the scene. Shortly after, the suspects hit another vehicle at 900 East and kept going.

While driving through a red light at 3300 South and 700 East, the suspects hit another three cars. Two of the three suspects then got out of the car and attempted to flee before being arrested.

Three people inside vehicles hit during the chase were treated with minor injuries.

"This could’ve been much worse. We are so lucky," said Sgt. Melody Cutler. "When you’re hitting people driving like that, we are so lucky, especially going through an intersection like this, that no one was seriously injured.”

Cutler said police had learned the car had been stolen and that the suspects were under the influence of illegal drugs.
