WEST VALLEY CITY — A mother and son were arrested early Thursday after police say they led officers on a short car chase.
The incident began just after 3 a.m. near 3600 West and 4100 South when an officer spotted a car that was reported as stolen, West Valley Police Lt. Matt Elson said. The officer attempted to pull the 18-year-old driver and his 35-year-old female passenger over, but they took off.
At one point during the chase, the fleeing suspects went into a cul-de-sac and hit the pursuing police car while trying to get back out, Elson said. The police vehicle had minor damage to the front bumper and was able to continue chasing, he said.
The suspects got out of their vehicle near 4400 West and 3300 South and ran. A police K-9 was brought to the area and found the man, Elson said. The 18-year-old was treated for a dog bite at a local hospital before being taken to the Salt Lake County Jail. His mother was found a short time later and also arrested.
The names of the man and woman were not immediately available. Additional information will be posted as it becomes available.
