SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Police are searching for someone who drove by and shot at a Utah state trooper who was making a separate roadside arrest following a wild chase Friday.

Authorities say the trooper wasn’t hurt by the shot fired near the 3500 South exit on the southbound side of I-215, which was closed about 2:30 p.m.

Utah Highway Patrol Capt. Steve Winward says a woman drove the wrong way up the 3500 South ramp after the trooper tried to pull her over, then stopped her car at the stop of the ramp and ran.

The trooper caught up and was trying to arrest her when another car, a two-door Black Honda, drove by and fired the shot over his head.

The woman is being treated for minor injuries from the scuffle.
