3:22 a.m.
600 S. West Temple

A 15-year-old male juvenile drove a car in the wrong direction on one-way 600 South in downtown Salt Lake City. He collided with an SUV legally driving north along West Temple. Both vehicles ended up on the lawn in front of a hotel on the northwest corner of the intersection. The juvenile exited the car and began walking away from the crash. An off-duty SLCPD officer had seen the crash, caught up to the juvenile and held him for arriving officers. Both drivers were transported to different hospitals with minor injury. The juvenile was processed for DUI. He was reportedly a runaway and the car he was driving was reported stolen just before the crash.
