GOLF MANOR, OH (FOX19) -

A 36-year-old motorcyclist fleeing police crashed into the front porch of a business early Monday, Golf Manor police said.

Speeds reached about 40 mph in the brief pursuit that only spanned about a half mile. It ended with the motorcycle crashing into a business at Ridge and Woodford roads, according to police.

The motorcyclist suffered a minor head injury and road rash.

He was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he is expected to recover.
