WEST JORDAN, Utah — Police are looking for a man who they said threatened to kill another driver on a West Jordan roadway.

The incident began in the area of 7800 South and Utah 111 around 2:45 p.m. Saturday.

According to Jennifer Worthen, public information officer for the West Jordan Police Department, the complainant said a male driver in a white Chevy truck, with a trailer and two motorcycles on it, was driving aggressively — running red lights and refusing to let the complainant merge in the southbound lanes.

When the complainant drove up next to the aggressive driver, Worthen said the two began “flipping each other off.”

Both men reportedly agreed to pull over so they could fight.

At one point, Worthen said the complainant told the suspect, “Let’s go to the substation.”

That’s when the suspect allegedly went back to his vehicle, pulled out a gun and threatened to kill the complainant.

Then both parties left the area, with the suspect traveling westbound on 8200 South.

Worthen said the suspect hasn’t been found since.

Luckily, no injuries were reported and neither vehicle was damaged.

The incident was under investigation.
