CLEVELAND, OH -
We've learned a deadly motorcycle crash last weekend happened as the biker was running from an Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper in a chase.
This marks the second time in weeks we've seen a chase by a trooper in Cleveland end in a crash, and it comes as Cleveland Police have put tighter restrictions on when their officers can chase.
The latest case involving the OSP in Cleveland happened near West 131 Street and Lorain Avenue. A trooper passed a biker who was speeding and driving erratically.
A report says the suspect was being stopped for a traffic violation, and that the suspect fled and a brief pursuit was initiated. The chase ended moments later when the suspect lost control and crashed.
The chase only lasted about a half mile and the trooper had his lights and sirens on.
In the other recent OSP chase in Cleveland, the patrol says two teens crashed in a stolen SUV.
