NEPHI — A short police chase on I-15 ended when the vehicle being pursued rolled into oncoming lanes Saturday night.

A Utah Highway Patrol vehicle followed the car 10 miles and had called for local agencies to put spikes in the roadway before the car rolled, according to UHP Sgt. Jacob Cox.

The driver of the car, whose name had not yet been released, was flown to the hospital with injuries.

I-15 was closed in both directions for about eight miles between state Route 68 and Yuba Dam Road. Traffic was being diverted onto Highway 28 near Levan.
