Road rage incident escalates on US-6
On January 30, 2022, at approximately 12:40 am, Utah Highway Patrol troopers responded to a reckless driving incident near milepost 179 on US-6. A white sedan was reportedly driving on the shoulder and cutting off vehicles. The facts of this incident are still under investigation, but it is believed that the occupants of the sedan brandished a weapon at a semi. After the initial brandishing, the semi-driver reported using his own handgun during the incident. There were no injuries in relation to this incident. Law enforcement searched the area on US-6 but did not locate either vehicle involved. A short time later, the white sedan was observed northbound on I-15 in northern Utah County, where officers responded. Upon locating the vehicle, troopers, Utah County deputies, and local police agencies stopped the vehicle near milepost 289 on I-15 northbound. Three occupants of the reckless vehicle were taken into custody without further incident. Investigators are currently interviewing all parties involved. The driver of the reckless vehicle will be booked into the Utah County Jail, and any potential charges will be screened through the Utah County prosecutor’s office.
