Good Samaritan finds out man she helped was running from deputies


A motorcyclist is in custody after leading sheriff's deputies on a chase through two Southeast Texas counties.

Officials say the chase started in Mid-Chambers County after deputies tried to stop a man on a motorcycle for a traffic violation. The man on the bike refused to pull over and sped away. Deputies pursed the man until they lost sight of him in Jefferson County.

At one point in the chase the man was clocked by radar going 160 mph.

A short while later the motorcyclist crashed after he lost control at the South Major Drive exit off of Interstate 10.

The man flagging down two motorists before a woman driving a Toyota Camry stopped to help him. She drove him to Baptist Hospital in Beaumont.

When DPS troopers came upon the wrecked motorcycle, they talked to witnesses who gave them a description of the woman and the car she was driving.

Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Spokesperson Rod Carroll told 12News that they spotted the woman's car at the hospital and found her in the emergency room. She cooperated with authorities and pointed out the man who was riding the motorcycle.

She told officials the man claimed he had a dislocated his shoulder.

The man was taken into custody without further incident.

The man's name will be released once he is arraigned.
