A 2012 GMC Acadia driven by a juvenile runaway was located at the Chevron gas station off Interstate 15 and 65th South in Bonneville County. As the Trooper attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver backed up and hit the Trooper's patrol vehicle and another vehicle that was parked. The vehicle fled and was later located by Bingham County Deputies. Bingham County Deputies attempted to stop the vehicle and the vehicle fled again, resulting in a pursuit in Blackfoot.

The vehicle struck an embankment in a parking lot and rolled. The driver and two juvenile passengers were transported by ground ambulance to Bingham Memorial Hospital. Bingham County took the juveniles into custody.
