Ogden police: Suspected carjacker is killed in head-on crash
OGDEN, Utah (AP) — Police in Ogden say a suspected carjacker is dead following a head-on crash.
Officers were dispatched to the Newgate Mall around 9 p.m. Friday after a report of a robbery.
Police say a man walked up to a woman sitting in her vehicle and demanded she leave the car and give him the keys.
The man drove away in the stolen vehicle, then later stopped at a gas station and stole a pack of cigarettes.
He then drove from the scene at high speeds before suddenly veering into oncoming traffic and colliding head-on with a van.
Police say the suspected carjacker was pronounced dead at the scene.
His name hasn’t been released yet.
The driver of the van was treated at a hospital for minor injuries.
