Motorcyclist In Hospital, After Reportedly Fleeing From Deputy

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO CO., Md. - A Fruitland man is at the hospital, after allegedly fleeing from Police on a motorcycle.

The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office says on Sunday, around 8:00 PM, a Deputy tried to stop a 2003 Suzuki GSX51000 motorcycle on Beaglin Park Drive, for a traffic violation, but the rider accelerated away. Police say the motorcyclist continued to Outten Road, where he turned right through a steady red light, onto Zion Road.

According to the report, the bike continued at a high rate of speed on Zion, towards Forest Plains Lane. The Deputy says the motorcyclist started pulling away, until the Deputy couldn't see him anymore near Brown Road. Police say the Deputy continued, and was about a half a mile behind the motorcyclist, when he saw a cloud of white dust near Zion Church Road.

The Deputy arrived at the crash scene, and reportedly found the rider, Rodney Jarvi 2nd, in a ditch and the motorcycle around 20 feet away in a field. Police say the Deputy stayed with Jarvi until  emergency personnel arrived, and transported him to Peninsula Regional Medical Center. He is reportedly currently listed in critical condition.

Maryland State Police is assisting the Sheriff's Office with the investigation and reconstruction of the crash.
