Drunken man drives wrong way on I-15, collides with police vehicle


SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah Highway Patrol vehicle was damaged early Sunday morning as multiple troopers worked to stop a vehicle that was traveling the wrong way on I-15 in Salt Lake City.

Lt. Steven Winward, Utah Highway Patrol, said dispatch received a report of the vehicle at about 12:45 a.m. The vehicle was a 2000 Ford Ranger that was traveling south in the northbound HOV lane near 400 South.

Troopers made several attempts to stop the vehicle, but it continued on. Troopers deployed spikes near 7200 South and 8000 South to deflate the vehicle’s tires, but it continued moving south.

UHP Captain Mark Zesiger attempted to stop the truck near 9200 South, and the vehicle crashed head-on into his patrol car, which was disabled by the impact. The truck kept driving south, but troopers were able to force the vehicle to a stop at 10500 South.
