According to unofficial sources,  State Police and Sheriff’s Deputies participated in a high speed chase of a motorcyclist Saturday afternoon.   Police chased a motorcycle rider on Rt. 13 after the vehicle was clocked at over 130 mph.  The chase ended when the motorcyclist dumped his bike on Bethel Church Road near Hallwood and disappeared into the woods.  According to unofficial sources a state police cruiser was damaged in the chase.  The rider is still believed to be at large.

Also unofficial reports indicate there was a large motorcycle rally on Saxis Road Saturday evening.  Dozens of units from the Virginia State Police and the Accomack County Sheriff’s Department responded to the event.  We have reached out to law enforcement and will update as soon as we hear more.
