TULSA, Oklahoma -

A motorcycle rider crashed while apparently trying to get away from a Tulsa Police officer early Saturday. It happened on Highway 169 just past the 41st Street on-ramp.

Sergeant Chris Maudy said an officer was finishing up a traffic stop at about 2:45 a.m. when a group of motorcycles went by.

Two of the motorcyclists were "riding wheelies," Maudy said.

"He hit his lights to try to stop them. Two did slow down for him, but two took off," Maudy said. Those two drivers were merging onto Highway 169 when the lead motorcycle collided with a car, according to police.

Both the car and the other motorcyclist kept going, police say. The driver who wrecked only had a couple of scrapes, according to TPD.

"That driver, miraculously, is unharmed. He will be cited for speeding and failure to yield," Maudy said.

Maudy said the other motorcyclist came back to check on his friend and was cited for having a bent license plate.

However, that motorcyclist contacted News On 6 to say that he did not know the other motorcyclist but was stopped by police as he rode by to see if he could render aid.
