A man was seriously injured in a motorcycle crash after he fled a traffic stop in Apple Valley. An officer attempted to stop the motorcyclist for speeding at more than 100 mph. The rider failed to stop and instead sped down residential streets in excess of 80 mph, leading the officer on a high-speed chase.

The pursuit ended when the motorcyclist crashed into a chain linked fence on Ramcherias Road, near Mohawk Road. Witnesses say the rider was thrown about 20 feet in the motorcycle crash. The motorcyclist was flown to a trauma hospital with serious injuries, and his current condition is unknown.

In 2013, 34% of motorcyclists involved in fatal crashes were speeding. For drivers in passenger cars, this number was only 21%. According to 2013 data from the Insurance Information Institute, motorcyclists were 26 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a crash per vehicle mile traveled, and five times more likely to suffer injuries in a crash.

“Motorcyclists are already at greater risk for injury or death. Traveling at speeds around 100 mph only adds to the danger. If you ride a motorcycle, be smart and slow down,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
