Motorcyclist and trooper in pursuit drive off 20-foot embankment; motorcyclist killed

The Associated Press

The Washington State Patrol says both a motorcyclist and a state trooper drove off a 20-foot embankment Tuesday evening during a high-speed chase near Port Angeles. The unidentified motorcyclist died.

The trooper was able to crawl from the wreckage without any serious injuries, according to a KOMO report. He was not immediately identified.

Trooper Russ Winger says the chase began on Highway 101 when a trooper tried to stop the motorcyclist for speeding. Winger says the biker raced off, reaching speeds of 90 miles per hour. The chase turned onto a local road and ended about 10 miles southeast of Port Angeles.

The crash is under investigation.
