Hit and run suspect eludes police, but was finally taken into custody
SALT LAKE CITY — The suspect in a hit and run accident in Millcreek late Tuesday morning was involved in several eventful contacts with police and was finally taken into custody
Unified Police said Jesse Ulibarri, age 31, will be jailed following injures he received when the vehicle he’d stolen rolled.
The chase with Ulibarri began in Millcreek, where Unified Police said they’d made contact with Ulibarri. He matched the description of a suspected hit and run driver on 2353 East.
After a scuffle, Ulibarri broke free from the police and fled. He was located later in the area of 50th South and Arbor Lane near a construction site.
When another officer tried to detain Ulibarri there, the suspect reportedly took one of the construction vehicles and rammed one of the police cars, causing damage to the car.
Sgt. Melody Cutler said that the construction vehicle had a tracking device, and it was later found with Ulibarri in Taylorsville where a short pursuit began. It ended when Ulibarri rolled the vehicle on 1300 South and 400 West and fled on foot.
He was later taken into custody.
