The initial dispatch that took the call mentioned the family from the home was outside but there were concerns of firearms going off from the heat of the fire.
Details of the reason for the chase are still unknown to us, but we do know they discussed on the dispatch radio the motorcycle did not have a license plate. As for the driver, we do not know the extent of his injuries or pending legal woes he may be facing. We will update this story when we find out.
editor's note- " driver" is referring to the motorcyclist, not the police officer.
published edit at 3:06 AM 5/4/2022- headline clarity "crash" changed to "motorcycle wreck"
Editors note 5/6/2022- 8:49 PM- we are waiting on confirmation of which madison county department was in pursuit as it was bought to our attention that it was Lapel police, however neither have confirmed which department was actually the department that was involved in the chase.
