The officer made a U-turn and began pursuing the motorcycle.

Not long after, at the intersection of Woodlawn Road and River Road, the motorcycle was involved in a collision with a civilian vehicle.

The operator of the motorcycle succumbed to his injuries at the scene.

Three investigators and two forensic investigators have been assigned to the incident, the SIU says.
