CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - A man remains hospitalized after crashing his motorcycle while fleeing police in southeast Missouri.

The accident happened Monday in Cape Girardeau, and formal charges have not yet been filed.

The Southeast Missourian (https://bit.ly/1Ni1ayj ) reports that an officer tried to stop the motorcyclist for speeding. The motorcyclist fled and the officer pursued him for about two blocks before stopping the pursuit out of safety concerns.

Police Sgt. Adam Glueck says police then received a report of a crash. Witnesses told authorities that the motorcyclist was speeding when he lost control after cresting a hill, and crashed into a dead-end barricade.

Details about the man’s injuries have not been released.
