Authorities say he was driving too fast for the slippery conditions.

Lt. Mike Wardle, Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office: "He didn't use good judgment on traveling these roads. They're snow-packed, they're slippery."

The deputy was chasing the man's car because he thought the car might have been stolen. It actually turned out to be a rental car.

Investigators say the driver won't explain why he sped away ...but they say he has a long, criminal history.
