First Published Feb 21 2014 10:01 am • Last Updated Feb 21 2014 01:10 pm

A 33-year-old Salt Lake City man was behind bars Friday on suspicion of multiple felony misdemeanor charges after he allegedly fled an attempted traffic stop, crashed into a car and then tried to run away.

Police say that when an officer attempted to pull the suspect over for speeding, he accelerated through a red light at 900 West and 1700 South about 4:45 p.m. Thursday and collided with another vehicle. The suspect then jumped from the car and attempted to flee on foot, but was captured a short distance away, police said.
