A motorcyclist is dead after he crashed his bike while fleeing from a state trooper over the weekend.
The Nebraska State Patrol reports 40-year-old Jeremiah Cummings of Lincoln was clocked at 110 miles per hour late Saturday evening on I-80 in Lincoln. The trooper tried to stop the motorcycle, but the rider sped off.
N.S.P. says Cummings left I-80 at the Waverly exit and continued east on Highway 6 through Waverly, topping 80 miles an hour until finally reaching 120 miles an hour as he drove through Waverly into rural Cass County.
As the motorcycle neared Greenwood, Cummings lost control of his bike and crashed.
