VERNAL, Utah — A high-speed police chase Sunday in Uintah County ended when one of the fleeing suspects shot at police and then took his own life.

The pursuit began around 11 a.m. when a Utah Highway Patrol trooper tried to stop two men in a newer model Suzuki car for speeding about six miles west of Vernal on U.S. Highway 40.
