A motorcyclist was injured Saturday (April 14th) after a high-speed chase that ended with the motorcycle crashing through a barbed-wire fence on Gore-Subligna Road.
The chase began when a Georgia State Trooper attempted to pull the motorcycle over on Highway 27. The motorcycle then turned onto Gore-Subligna Road and continued north towards Subligna. The motorcycle left the roadway near the 3400 block of Gore-Subligna Road, close to Pleasant Hill Church.
The motorcyclist sustained injuries in the crash after going through a barbed wire fence and coming to rest in a field. The driver, who has not yet been identified by the Georgia State Patrol Post in Rome, was a white male. According to scanner traffic, there were bones protruding from the injured man. Air Life medical transport helicopter transported the crash victim to the hospital after Redmond EMS requested the victim to be air-lifted. The helicopter landed in the field close to the crash site.
Redmond EMS, volunteer fire departments and Chattooga County Sheriff’s Deputies were all on the scene.
