Motorcycle safety tips by Washington State Patrol
Deputies are hunting for a man who ran away from a motorcycle wreck in rural Benton County.
A Benton County sheriff’s deputy spotted the bike going 90 mph on Highway 397 around 1 a.m. Wednesday. When the corporal tried to stop the driver, he kept speeding and turned onto rural roads, the Benton County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post.
The driver crashed on one of those roads before deputies caught up. He then fled on foot.
Deputies tried to use a dog to track him, but were unsuccessful.
Investigators are hoping the public can help find the man. Anyone with information about the wreck can call the sheriff’s office at 509-735-6555 or non-emergency dispatch at 509-628-0333.
