NEPHI, Jaub County — A woman attempted to escape from police by driving on the wrong side of Interstate 15 in a stolen car Sunday afternoon.
According to the Juab County Sheriff’s Office, the Utah Highway Patrol identified a stolen vehicle in Nephi at approximately 5:52 p.m. The suspect was seen driving northbound on I-15 near mile maker 224.
When police attempted to stop her, she fled in the stolen car and a pursuit started.
