NORTH SALT LAKE -- Police were relieved that no one was injured when a man drove recklessly through here and Farmington early Sunday morning.
"This one had the potential to be extremely ugly," said North Salt Lake Sgt. Mitch Gwilliam.
He said 22-year-old Trevor Reed from West Valley was arrested shortly after 7 a.m. following his driving through city streets at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour.
Reed was driving a car stolen from a Logan home, Gwilliam said, when he finally lost control of the vehicle and crashed into two parked cars, including a Lexis, at a car dealership located southbound at 3275 S. Highway 89 in North Salt Lake.
Although an all points bulletin had been out on the man, police several times stopped the pursuit for public safety, Gwilliam said.
The chase began with the Utah Highway Patrol, who had chased the man southbound on I-15, sometimes in excess of 100 miles per hour until he exited at 500 West in West Bountiful, Gwilliam said.
Reed was a fugitive who had been to prison and who was wanted on a parole violation and multiple warrants. Police indicated that they were unaware of his record and that the car was stolen when they began pursuit of the speeding car.
He was arrested on multiple charges of fleeing from police, traffic violations and possession of multiple items of stolen property.
