High-speed chase in Hyrum

<strong>HYRUM —</strong> One man was arrested and two others suspects are being looked for, following a high speed chase in Hyrum, early Saturday morning.  Braiden Goodey was booked into the Cache County Jail on charges of obstructing justice, failing to stop, and intoxication after he and two other suspects attempted to flee, after being pulled over by deputies from the Cache County Sheriff’s office.

Sheriff’s deputies report Goodey was a passenger in a car that was pulled over in a traffic stop near 3400 South and 1200 West.   The vehicle was being driven by Brian Jenson.  The deputy who pulled over Jenson said he noticed the smell of alcohol as he approached the car.  The deputy also said Jenson showed signs of intoxication.  After a second Sheriff’s deputy arrived on scene, Jenson was asked to exit the vehicle.  He ignored the request and drove off.

Deputies chased the vehicle into the city of Hyrum.  During the chase a passenger jumped out of the vehicle as Jenson and Goodey continued to flee law enforcement.  Deputies said they terminated their pursuit after the first passenger jumped from the vehicle. 

The vehicle was later found by a Utah Highway Patrol trooper, after crashing into a fence near 200 East and 300 North.  A Logan City officer and his K-9 were called out as a perimeter was set up around the crash site.  Braiden Goodey, the second passenger surrendered as the dog was being deployed.

The driver Brian Jenson and other passenger, who jumped from the vehicle, have yet to be arrested.

The vehicle crash caused property damage to two yards and a fence. There were no reported injuries.
