CLEARFIELD — Northbound I-15 has reopened in Clearfield after a crash, officials said.

The highway was briefly closed at milepost 335, near 650 North in Clearfield, Utah Department of Transportation officials said on Twitter.

Utah Highway Patrol troopers got at least 15 reports of a reckless driver in a silver Hyundai Elantra, UHP trooper Colton Freckleton said.

A trooper found the driver, but the man then fled the scene, Freckleton said. At least one car got hit in the ensuing pursuit, he added.

The driver eventually rolled the vehicle, and the car was blocking lanes in the area, according to Freckleton.

The driver was taken to a hospital in the area, Freckleton said. He did provide information about the severity of the man's injuries.

Alcohol is suspected to be a factor in the crash, Freckleton said. He did not provide any information about the identity of the driver.

The highway had reopened by about 8:45 p.m., according to UDOT's website.
