According to a representative for West Valley City Police, an officer stopped a car at the on-ramp from northbound I-215 to S.R. 201.
"The driver of the vehicle intentionally drove down a little embankment there, off the highway, and then three occupants of the vehicle fled on foot over a fence adjacent to the embankment," said Lt. Mike Fossmo, West Valley City Police Department.
Multiple West Valley City and Unified Police officers used K-9s to search the area and took two of the three people into custody.
Fossmo said one of the suspects was wearing body armor.
