UPDATE: Stolen Vehicle Used In MD High Speed Chase

Posted: Updated:

WMDT 47 News - Authorities are now releasing more details in Wednesday's high speed chase that landed a motorcyclist in the hospital. According to the Dorchester Sheriff's Office, the vehicle was clocked at 110 mph on Rt. 50 near Chateau Road. However instead of stopping when a deputy attempted to pull over the motorcycle, the driver, 19-year-old Brandon Holt, reportedly laid on the gas, upping his speed to more than 130 mph.

Further down the road, they say a Maryland State Police trooper attempted to wave Holt down and again instead of stopping, the Crofton, MD teenager accelerated, this time, aiming the vehicle toward the trooper, who jumped out of the way. The chase finally came to a stop with a crash in Wicomico County near Naylor Mill Road. Authorities say Holt lost control of the motorcycle and leaving the roadway. He suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury for treatment.

Sometime during the chase, a deputy with the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office ran the tag number on the motorcycle and found it to be stolen through the Ocean City Police Department. It was also found that Holt did not possess a valid license nor did he have insurance on the vehicle. He now has several charges against him pending. Those offences include, CDS possession, motor vehicle charges and assault charges. We're told those charges will be handed down once Holt is released from the hospital.

The Dorchester County's Office was assisted by the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office and Maryland State Police.
