A motorcycle pursuit in Morgan County comes to an end with a two-vehicle accident, a suspect from the St. Louis area seriously hurt and felony charges filed.
Highway patrol and courthouse records indicate that it happened late Monday afternoon on highway-5 at the TT-south junction.
35-year-old Shane Walter was being pursued by the sheriff’s department when he attempted to pass a pick-up truck which started to make a left-hand turn. Walter was seriously hurt and flown to University Hospital after he was thrown from the motorcycle.
He has also, since, been charged with resisting arrest, possession of a controlled substance, driving revoked and assault-special victims.
The driver of the other vehicle was not hurt.
