PARK CITY — A Summit County man was arrested for possession of three different kinds of drugs after colliding with two vehicles and attempting to flee early Sunday, Park City police said.

Witnesses describe seeing a man in a white Audi sedan drive off after crashing with a taxi. Police began hunting the vehicle about 2 a.m. when they received several 911 calls.

Park City Police Capt. Phil Kirk said that the officers tried to stop the traffic, but the driver persisted at about 15 mph, thumping the control numerous times.
