Motorcyclist Arrested After Crashing On I-5

A high speed chase of a motorcyclist in Tehama County ended in a crash over the weekend. At 7:30PM Sunday evening a sheriff’s deputy spotted a motorcycle that had evaded Red Bluff Police on Walnut Street a few minutes earlier. He tried to stop the motorcycle on Luther Road but the rider took off to the east. With the officer trailing him with lights and siren blazing, the rider took South Main Street to Interstate Five and sped away at well over 100 miles an hour, weaving in and out of traffic. The pursuit was called off, but a few minutes later there were reports that the same motorcyclist had lost control and crashed into the dirt shoulder while exiting the freeway at Corning Road. During an area check, 35-year-old Vincent Smith of Red Bluff was found on the other side of I-5 and he allegedly admitted to being the man they were after. After a medical check smith was booked into jail for felony evading.
