GREEN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) – -

A 21-year-old motorcyclist was critically hurt after leading police on a high-speed chase and crashing overnight, police said.

An officer on routine patrol spotted a motorcyclist operating recklessly by speeding and popping wheelies in the 6500 block of Harrison Avenue about 10:14 p.m. Sunday, said Green Township Sgt. Daniel Vath.

The officer attempted to pull the motorcyclist over, but he refused to comply and sped off.

The motorcyclist, who was not wearing a helmet, did a U-turn and went down Johnson Road to Reemelin Road, where the officer lost sight of him, Vath said.

Police cut off the pursuit but still checked the area.

They found the motorcycle crashed on the right side of Reemelin Road, in the 5600 block. The bike hit a utility pole guy wire and then an empty parked car, which then was pushed into another empty parked vehicle, Vath said.

The motorcyclist was found unconscious on a residential front yard.

He was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he is listed in critical condition, according to Vath.

Speed is a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation, he said.

Charges such as failure to comply with police and reckless operation of a motor vehicle are pending.

The driver did not have a license to operate a motorcycle, according to police.
