SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Police are searching for the driver of a stolen truck after he collided with two cars to avoid being arrested Tuesday.

Around 1:54 p.m. Salt Lake City Police officers recognized a stolen truck parked in the area of 1800 South State Street. Officers also saw a stolen license plate on the truck.

When officers attempted to approach the vehicle, the driver immediately backed out of a parking space and side-swiped two cars — one of which was an unmarked police vehicle, a press release says.
