Fleeing motorcyclist hitches a ride


A motorcyclist is in custody after a high-speed chase through two counties.

Deputies say the man took off going up to a 160 miles per hour after deputies tried to stop him on I-10 in Chambers County.

The chase didn't end until the biker lost control and crashed at the I-10 South/Major Drive exit.

Then it gets stranger.

The  motorcyclist flagged down a driver and hitched a ride to Baptist Beaumont Hospital where the man was finally taken into custody without incident.

It's not clear what charges the driver will face.
