A 36-year-old Salem man escaped serious injury Saturday night when his car went airborne during a high-speed chase on US 191 and crashed into a ravine near the Carbon Power Plant. The driver, Lance Justet, was wanted in Utah County for several outstanding warrants and was booked into Carbon County Jail for violations incurred in the chase.

According to Helper Police Chief Trent Anderson, the incident began at around 10:50 p.m. Officer Chris Gigliotti noticed a suspicious vehicle in the North Martin area of Helper. As Gigliotti pulled up to investigate this vehicle, the driver suddenly took off.

Gigliotti began a pursuit and followed this vehicle as it traveled northbound on Highway 191. Around the Emma Park area, the suspect turned around and traveled back towards Helper. Officers with the Carbon County Sheriff's Office and the Utah Highway Patrol quickly responded to assist Officer Gigliotti.

As the suspect vehicle approached the Carbon Power Plant, the driver lost control of his vehicle and went airborne and plunged into a ravine, where he was quickly apprehended.

Justet was booked into the Carbon County Jail for several violations including Fleeing/Eluding, Reckless driving, Ignition Interlock Violation and Driving on Suspension. Nobody was injured during this event.
