WEST VALLEY CITY — Two teenage boys were arrested early Saturday after leading police on a high-speed chase throughout the city.
Police attempted to pull over an older model Honda Accord without license plates about 3:11 a.m., but the vehicle did not stop, said West Valley Police Sgt. Robert Brinton. The car was traveling south in the northbound lanes, Brinton said, and police pursued it until oncoming traffic made the chase unsafe.
The Honda was later spotted by another officer heading east on 5400 South, and the pursuit continued until the car's tires could be spiked, he said. The car didn't stop, even with its tires popped, Brinton said.
At some point, "the driver was unable to negotiate a turn," breached the median and wrecked the car, Brinton said. "At that point, the driver and one passenger gave up."
The two teens, ages 16 and 15, were arrested for investigation of "multiple charges," Brinton said. He did not release the boys' names but said the they are known gang members.
A police K-9 vehicle was damaged during the chase, he said.
