Sheriff’s Report: Park City man crashes motorcycle after evading law enforcement

May 24-26, 2017

A 40-year-old Park City man who nearly led Summit County deputies and Park City Police officers on a high-speed pursuit sustained a broken leg in the Three Kings area of Park City after crashing his motorcycle, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

On Sunday, May 21, a report states a sergeant with the Sheriff’s Office observed two black motorcycles racing on State Road 224. He reportedly attempted to perform a traffic stop on one of the suspects while Park City Police officers attempted to pull over the other bike, with no success.

According to the report, the suspect briefly pulled over to the side of the road before accelerating back towards S.R. 224. It says a pursuit was not initiated because of heavy traffic.

An injury accident was later reported in Park City and officers found the suspect with multiple injuries, including a broken leg. He was transported by ambulance to Park City Hospital. The Summit County Attorney’s Office will screen the case for charges.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to several calls between Sunday, May 14, and Sunday, May 21, including two cases of suspect fraudulent activity.
