BECKLEY – A man was taken to the
hospital following a motorcycle pursuit, according to Beckley Police.
Corporal Dean Capehart said the
incident happened around 1 a.m. Tuesday. He said police began pursuing the
motorcycle on North Kanawha Street, when the driver was going around 15 miles
over the speed limit and did not have registration.
The driver's speed reportedly
increased even more during the pursuit, until he crashed on Ragland Road.
Capehart said upon the suspect’s
recovery, he will face a felony charge of fleeing from an officer (reckless
indifference), a speeding charge as well as a no operator’s charge.
