Motorcycle chase ends in crash in Jackson County, police say

JACKSON COUNTY, MI — A vehicle pursuit in Jackson County ended in a motorcycle crash about 9:15 p.m. on Aug. 30, police said.

A Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputy was dispatched to Francis Street to follow up on a report from the Fowlerville Police Department, police said. FPD had requested a deputy check the residence of a suspect wanted on charges of breaking-and-entering and vehicle theft out of Fowlerville.

While approaching the residence, the deputy spotted the suspect, a Jackson County man, riding a motorcycle on Francis Street near Meadow Heights, police said. The deputy attempted to pull the motorcycle over, though the man refused to stop, and a vehicle chase began.

The suspect eventually lost control of the motorcycle and struck a stop sign near Country View Drive and Wheaton Road, police said. The driver was thrown from the motorcycled and suffered injuries. He was transported to Henry Ford Allegiance Health by ambulance for medical attention.

As of Tuesday morning, the suspect is in stable condition, police said.
