The vehicle ran a stop sign at 400 South Emery and collided with the front end of a westbound truck. The truck was occupied by a male driver and his wife. The Honda then spun around and came to rest as it struck a parked truck. The three occupants of the suspect vehicle then fled on foot along the Jordan River trail.
