MURRAY, Utah (ABC4) – More details have been released regarding a wild high-speed police chase that involved six juveniles eventually shutting down State Street roads on Friday morning.

Murray Police say the incident first began in West Valley City after two people were robbed and gunpoint during a carjacking around midnight.

Police say two suspects took the victims’ car and money and then fled the scene. The victims later spotted the suspects in West Valley City and followed them into Murray.

Officers say the victims attempted to take back their vehicle from the suspects by blocking them while inside a parking lot near 975 E Winchester Street, but were unsuccessful. Authorities say the suspects escaped and continued speeding away.

Officials say as the car drove away, one of the victims grabbed onto the back of the suspects’ vehicle and hung on as the car kept moving. During this time, police say the suspects assaulted the victim as the car was remained in motion.

A short time later, the victim eventually fell off the car and was dragged for a short distance before falling off. As the suspects sped off again, police later spotted the vehicle near 3500 South and 700 East.

The suspects led police on a chase that spanned multiple cities and involved multiple law enforcement agencies.

Authorities say the suspects hit speeds of over 80 mph along State Street and over 90 mph along 1-15 at one point. Police say the suspects almost struck a pedestrian during the pursuit.

The suspects did not stop and drove all around the valley, hitting areas from downtown Salt Lake City to 9000 South.

The chase remained mostly on State Street where officers eventually spiked the suspect’s vehicle tires, ending the chase. The vehicle finally stopped near Fashion Place Mall at 6500 South in Murray.

When police finally stopped the vehicle, six juvenile occupants were inside the car. All suspects have been arrested and are in custody.

Both northbound and southbound lanes along State Street were closed in the morning as police worked to clear and investigate the scene.

No further information has been released as the investigation remains ongoing.
