(SALEM, Ore. ) - A motorcyclists is in critical condition after riding recklessly and crashing near the intersection of 45th and Market Street in Salem.

Marion County Sheriff's Deputies attempted to stop the motorcycle, driven by 45-year-old, William Liebertz IV of Salem, after it passed them at high speeds on Lancaster near Center Street. The deputies turned around to stop the motorcycle and radioed ahead to additional units.

One block later a Sergeant with the sheriff's office witnessed the rider's behavior and activated his lights in an attempt to pull the motorcycle over. The rider continued riding at high speeds and the Sergeant quickly terminated the pursuit of the motorcycle.

Unfortunately even after all deputies deactivated their lights and stopped following the motorcycle, the rider continued speeding through city streets. Near the intersection of 45th and Market Street the rider lost control and crashed his motorcycle.

The Marion County Sheriff's Office CRASH Team has been called to the scene to investigate the accident.
