The car pushed the motorcycle down the street nearly a block before crashing. A witness told KSL a man and woman got out of the car and ran. A woman was caught, the man is still on the run.

Police say they are familiar with the suspects; both have some sort of history with police. For now though, there is no description given of the suspect.

The westbound lanes of 3300 South were closed while investigators sort out what caused the accident.
