A 19-year-old Wichitan was injured Saturday morning when his motorcycle crashed following a pursuit by the Kansas Highway Patrol that reached speeds of more than 100 mph, authorities said.
Jordan L. Manning, 19, sustained non-life threatening injuries from the collision in south Wichita after a chase that began at 1:03 a.m. in the northeast part of the city, Trooper Gary Warner said.
Another trooper attempted to make a traffic stop of Manning on eastbound K-96. The pursuit continued on westbound Kellogg, then south on I-135 before exiting on southbound K-15, Warner said.
Nine minutes after the pursuit started, the cycle struck a curb at the intersection of K-15 and 31st Street South and overturned, he added.
Never miss a local story.
Manning was ejected from the cycle. He was taken to Via Christi Hospital St. Francis in fair condition, Warner said. The hospital didn’t list Manning as a patient by 8 a.m., a spokeswoman said.
KHP is still investigating the incident.
