SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake Police Department filed charges Thursday against 40-year-old Chase W. Pollock, in connection to a critical hit and run that happened on Mother’s Day.  

Pollock now has six charges against him. 

Those charges include “two counts of aggravated assault, one count of failure to remain at the scene of the crash, one count of speeding, one count of unlawfully driving on the left side of the road and one count of failure to obey a traffic control device,” according to a SLPD press release. 

The crash happened in the Sunnyside/Foothill neighborhood in Salt Lake, On May 12. Pollock allegedly was speeding at the 1300 S. 2100 E. intersection, where he ran a red light and then crashed into a white Audi. SLPD said the Audi “spun several times” before resting in a parking lot. 

There were two men in the Audi. They were taken to the hospital with critical injuries.

When Pollock’s Toyota SUV came to a stop, he reportedly got out of his car, ran from the scene and changed shirts.

According to a SLPD press release from the day of the incident, community members stopped Pollock until police could take him into custody. He was then taken to the hospital since he sustained “serious but non-life-threatening injuries.” 

SLPD said Pollock is still recovering at a hospital. 

SLPD detectives said Pollock was going about 92 miles an hour when he hit the Audi. 

The investigation was headed by SLPD’s Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit.
