COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS — A driver hit a pedestrian while trying to escape police in Cottonwood Heights on Thursday, police reported.
Cottonwood Heights police responded to a fraud report at a Wells Fargo bank on 1985 S. Fort Union Boulevard, said Unified Police Sgt. Ryan Shosted.
Officers arrived around 4 p.m. and saw a man and woman getting into a car, Shosted said. The man immediately ran away on foot while the woman drove the car into police vehicles.
The woman drove away from the bank, and police received multiple calls about a reckless driver. Following the calls, the police found the woman’s car in a neighborhood nearby, according to Shosted.
The car sped away but hit a pedestrian and another car at 1740 E. Murray Holladay Road, Shosted said.
The pedestrian is in good condition, he said.
The woman was taken into custody and the male is still on the run but is not considered dangerous, Shosted said.
He did not provide identities for either person.
Shosted said Unified Police Department is investigating the crash and Cottonwood Heights Police will handle the fraud case.
