According to Mike Alexander with UHP, two vehicles were involved in the incident but only one crashed.
Alexander says a vehicle drove into the gore area between southbound I-15 and the off-ramp, striking the exit sign and rolling his car. Debris flew from the sign, hitting an uninvolved vehicle parked on the side of the roadway. UHP says this vehicle was having a flat tire replaced.
Following this, he fled from the scene, but UHP was able to locate him. The motorist is now in police custody, sustaining minor injuries from the accident.
The occupants of the uninvolved vehicle were not harmed during the incident, according to Alexander.
No info on the other driver involved is available at this time.
