Things don’t go as planned when a pueblo man flees police. Robert Frye, a 31-year-old resident of Pueblo West, Colorado, crashed his motorcycle into a dump truck after a high-speed police chase.
A police aircraft clocked Frye heading north on I-25 at speeds close to 130 mph. The aircraft notified the ground patrol. When the officers approached Frye, he sped off, crossed the median, went south, took exit 304 and wound his way through neighborhood roads.
The brief chase ended when Frye collided with the side of a dump truck around 9:35 am. He was pronounced dead at the scene; a small grass fire was quickly extinguished. The 2008 Honda motorcycle Fry was riding was reported stolen from Colorado Springs the previous Sunday.
The truck driver has not been identified, and he reportedly did not suffer any injuries. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that 35 percent of all fatal motorcycle accidents involved speeding in 2008.
