Police in Grand County arrested a 31-year-old man from Minnesota on Friday following a 30-minute chase that reached speeds of 110 mph.
The man drove a stolen Chevrolet Impala up and down I-70 near Green River, darting into oncoming traffic several times, said Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Ted Tingey. He also avoided spikes placed in the road by police.
When the spikes failed, troopers tried to shoot the stolen car's tires with shotguns, but failed due to the man's erratic driving, Tingey said.
The chase started about 4:20 p.m. Friday when a UHP trooper noticed the car's license plates had been removed. The man sped up when the officer tried to pull him over and continued at high speeds, Tingey said.
The man was captured after the Impala got stuck in the mud during an attempted U-turn. He tried to flee, but officers ran after him and quickly caught him, Tingey said.
Grand County sheriff's deputies assisted troopers in the chase.
The man was briefly hospitalized, then booked into the Grand County Jail.
