Search for biker who led authorities on high-speed chase

Posted: Updated:

ESCONDIDO (CBS 8) - A search is underway Wednesday for a person who led authorities on a high-speed chase in Escondido.

An Escondido police officer attempted to pull over a motorcycle driver Wednesday morning, for speeding near Via Rancho and Valley Parkways.

However, the suspect took off on SR-78, then to I-15 and several surface streets, hitting speeds up to 130 miles per hour.

The rider finally ditched the bike - a green Kawasaki Ninja – and fled.

Authorities searched near Lake and Rancho Drives for more than an hour, but were unable to locate him.
