SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A Salt Lake road is shut down this afternoon after a police chase ends in a crash.

South Salt Lake Captain Chris Snyder says it all began when an officer attempted to pull over a vehicle for speeding on 3600 S. West Temple.

The driver instead fled from police who then decided to end the pursuit.

The officer later found the suspect involved in a major accident at the intersection of 3900 South and 700 West.

Witnesses said the suspect had run a red light, hitting a truck and a Salt Lake County transport van, carrying eight inmates.

Synder said the suspect and the female driver of the truck were both seriously injured and life-flighted to the hospital.

Synder said the suspect does have a felony warrant for possession of stolen property.
