A Port Angeles man was killed Tuesday night after a high-speed police chase led his motorcycle down a 20-foot embankment. According to reports, Washington State Patrol trooper Travis Beebe attempted to stop the man, identified as 35-year-old Bjorn Larsen, for speeding at approximately 7:50 p.m. Larsen instead increased his speed, reportedly up to 90 miles per hour, but failed to negotiate a left turn and fell down the embankment.
Both Larsen and Beebe’s vehicles went over the embankment, and Larsen died after being ejected from his motorcycle. Beebe’s patrol car rolled down the embankment but he was not seriously injured.
Motorcyclists are 25 times more likely to be killed in a traffic accident than someone in a passenger car.
11 percent of all roadway incidents involve motorcycles.
