Travel is frustrating. We’ve all been there. Long lines to get through security, not enough staff at airport concessions. You can’t even get into the club because too many other customers have access. You’re delayed, the crew time out, and you finally learn you aren’t getting where you’re going. It’s enough to make you…
Oh, wait. No, it doesn’t cause you to do anything like this.
A suspect is in custody, accused of leading authorities on a chase and causing multiple crashes on I-80 through Parleys Canyon after a car jacking at the Salt Lake International Airport.
The 20-year-old man apparently went on a rampage after his flight was canceled, police said, carjacking multiple people, intentionally crashing into at least eight vehicles, and causing at least five crashes before he was taken into custody.

Media staging is at the Flying J rest stop near 900 West 2100 South. A PIO is on scene. #slc #slcpd #saltlakecity pic.twitter.com/47lqaab6PF

The passenger was arrested after highway patrol officers arrived on the scene in the midst of attempting car jackings. The most insane part? The guy was wrong and his flight wasn’t actually cancelled.
