Posted: Updated:

PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) - The Washington State Patrol says a motorcyclist and a state trooper both drove off an embankment during a high-speed chase Tuesday evening near Port Angeles.

The crash killed the motorcyclist, 35-year-old Bjorn Robert Larsen of Port Angeles. The trooper, 37-year-old Travis Beebe of Port Angeles, crawled from the wreckage with minor injuries and was treated at a hospital.

Trooper Russ Winger says the chase began on Highway 101 when the trooper tried to stop the motorcyclist for speeding. Winger says the biker raced off, reaching speeds of 90 miles per hour.

The chase ended when both vehicles failed to make a turn on a local road. The cycle landed 50 feet from the road. The patrol car overturned and was totaled.
