SAN ANGELO, Texas — A motorcyclist was badly injured after he rear-ended a passenger vehicle just after midnight Tuesday on West Avenue N.

According to a press release from the San Angelo Police Department, just after midnight, officers were dispatched to the 2700 block of West Avenue N for a report of a major motor vehicle crash involving a motorcycle and passenger car.

When they arrived, officers found a 28-year-old man, the motorcyclist, suffering from incapacitating injuries. He was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

The two occupants of the vehicle were treated for non-incapacitating injuries at a nearby hospital before being released.

The release said the SAPD's preliminary crash investigation showed the motorcyclist was traveling westbound on Avenue N at a high rate of speed before he rear-ended a 2006 Ford Mustang.

Investigators believe he is the same motorcyclist who fled from a patrol officer’s attempted traffic stop just minutes before the collision occurred.

The motorcyclist was issued citations for failure to control speed and no Class M driver license. More charges may be forthcoming pending the outcome of this ongoing investigation, the release said.
