SALT LAKE CITY — One woman died and three others were injured in a crash in Salt Lake City Saturday.

The crash occurred around noon in the area of 1200 West and 500 North after police received reports of a car driving erratically, said North Salt Lake Police Sgt. Mitch Gwilliam.

Police spotted the car on U.S. 89 and Center Street in North Salt Lake, where they attempted to stop it, but the vehicle fled into Salt Lake City, Gwilliam said. The car collided with another car with two female occupants.

One woman died and the other suffered life-threatening injuries, according to Gwilliam. The two men in the other car were taken to the hospital with injuries not considered to be life-threatening.

Witnesses said the two men were passing a bottle of whiskey back and forth while driving, and bottles were also found at the scene, according to the sergeant.

Police from North Salt Lake, Woods Cross, Salt Lake City and the Davis County Sheriff's Office all responded to the crash.

The identities of those involved have not yet been released.
