TAYLORSVILLE, Utah, May 13, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Officials are searching for two people who fled a crash in Taylorsville Monday morning.

Unified Police Department Sgt. Melody Gray told Gephardt Daily the incident occurred in the area of 4800 S. 3600 West at approximately 5:05 a.m.

The vehicle was traveling northbound on 3600 West, Gray said, when for an unknown reason, the driver swerved into the southbound lanes and went up onto the sidewalk. The vehicle then crashed into a power pole, a fire hydrant and a parked car, which was unoccupied.

The two people inside the suspect car then fled the scene.

Gray said officials believe the suspects were traveling at a high rate of speed.

Officials are investigating the incident and are working to find out if the vehicle was stolen.

Hundreds of people in the area were left without power, but as of 11 a.m. Rocky Mountain Power said it has been restored.

At this time there is no description of the driver and passenger.

Gephardt Daily will have more on this developing story as information is made available.
