SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Authorities say a northern Utah police officer has been injured after rolling his vehicle on Interstate 15 during a car chase.

Utah Highway Patrol spokesman Todd Royce says the Bluffdale officer suffered minor injuries in the Saturday night incident and went to the hospital as a precautionary measure.

The chase began in Lehi when officers tried to stop a vehicle for a registration violation.

The suspect failed to stop and fled down the highway.

Royce says the Bluffdale officer joined the pursuit and rolled his vehicle near an on-ramp. The patrol car ended up in an emergency lane on the northbound side of the highway.

Officers terminated the chase after the crash and are still searching for the suspect.
