WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s office says a 37-year-old man died when he crashed during a police pursuit.
Police identified the man Friday as Timothy A. Tatum of Wichita.
Sheriff’s department spokesman Lt. Benjamin Blick said the chase began early Friday when a deputy tried to stop Tatum for a registration violation near McConnell Air Force Base.
Blick says the driver lost control when the motorcycle hit a median less than a half-mile after the chase began.
Tatum was thrown from the cycle and he died at the scene.
