ROSEVILLE. Mich. (WXYZ) -
Dash cam video from a police cruiser shows a Roseville police officer pull over a man on his motorcycle for speeding.
As the officer got out of her car and approached the man, he took off fast on his motorcycle. The officer tried to catch up by getting back in her car.
According to police the suspect started speeding again. He was trying to escape from the officer along 11 mile. Once the man got to Barkman, things took a violent turn.
“Approximately three quarters of a mile, he was coming approximately one hundred miles per hour and struck a car that was stopped at a red light and bounced off that into a light police,” said Roseville police chief James Berlin. “Unfortunately he suffered massive injuries.”
The driver of the other vehicle was not hurt.
Roseville police Chief James Berlin says the suspect has life-changing injuries and the crash should serve as a warning to others who like to speed.
“Any time you decide to drive that fast on any roadway it’s dangerous,” said Chief Berlin. “When you are on a motorcycle you have no protection around you.
It’s not clear why the suspect was speeding but it is believed he did not want the ticket because he has a suspended driver’s license.
When he gets out of the hospital he will face charges including Fleeing And Eluding Police.
