TAYLORSVILLE, Utah — Taylorsville Police say a woman is under arrest after driving a stolen car, then crashing into several other vehicles during a police chase on Friday. Investigators say she then got out of the stolen vehicle and got into an occupied car which she tried to steal.

A Taylorsville police officer reported that he saw someone driving a car that he says was stolen, from reports by the Farmington Police Department. The following is a description of the incident from a Taylorsville police officer: 

“Once officers began to box the vehicle in she began to reverse and hit the unoccupied vehicle behind her. The suspect put it in drive and rammed two law enforcement vehicles while evading onto 3500 South. The vehicle went Eastbound where a pursuit was initiated and the vehicle continued and did not stop. The vehicle continued Eastbound where it ran a red light and hit another vehicle. The suspect vehicle then spun out and caused three other vehicles to be hit.”

Investigators say the suspect then got out of the vehicle and into an occupied vehicle. The driver of that vehicle then got out before the suspect tried to jack it. 

The incident happened last night, with the woman taken into custody at around 8:30. Taylorsville PD has identified the woman as 33-year-old Crystal Campbell. 

Campbell has been charged with ten offenses by the police, including robbery, aggravated assault, and theft by receiving stolen property.  A police report states that Campbell “purposely damaged vehicles exceeding $7000.”  Investigators confirmed they found more stolen property from two different victims in the stolen car.
