January 19, 2021 — Just after 12:00 a.m. this morning, San Angelo Police were dispatched to the 2700 block of West Avenue N for the report of a major motor vehicle crash involving a motorcycle and passenger car.
Upon arrival, officers located a 28-year-old male motorcyclist suffering from incapacitating injuries. The man was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. The two occupants of the passenger car were treated for non-incapacitating injuries at a nearby hospital before being released.
The preliminary crash investigation revealed the motorcyclist was traveling westbound on Avenue N at a high rate of speed before he rear-ended a 2006 Ford Mustang. Investigators believe he is the same motorcyclist who fled from a patrol officer’s attempted traffic stop just minutes before the collision occurred.
The motorcyclist was issued citations for Failure to Control Speed and No Class M Driver’s License. Additional charges may be forthcoming pending the outcome of this ongoing investigation.
