According to police, the suspect, later identified as Cory Adams, 51, with last known address of Shoshone, Idaho, struck a car with his pickup injuring the occupants and continuing on. Bountiful police said Adams hit a second car and was told by the responding officer to stay in his vehicle, however police allege Adams rammed the police car and continued on nearly hitting two other police cars.
