AMERICAN FORK, Utah (AP) — American Fork police say a 21-year-old West Jordan man was arrested after a pickup ran a red light during a pursuit and collided with a car, killing a man who was a passenger in the car.

Police said the pursuit began Friday when a Utah County sheriff's deputy stopped the pickup but it then sped off as the deputy approached the truck to make contact with the driver.

Police said 21-year-old Trevor Pitcher from West Jordan was arrested after the collision on suspicion of manslaughter, reckless endangerment and other crimes.

The identity of the car passenger who was killed was not released.

Police said the woman driving the car and Pitcher had minor injuries.
