Motorcyclist wrecks, flees scene

CULLMAN - A single-vehicle wreck involving a Honda CBR sport bike occurred on Cherokee Avenue near Wal-Mart Distribution tonight, and the driver apparently fled on foot following the crash.

Cullman Police Department Officer Joey Duncan said, "The driver crashed and took off on foot, into the woods. Witnesses told us he appeared to be hurt and that he may have been intoxicated."

Duncan said officers combed through the woods just south of the intersection of Cherokee Avenue and Main Avenue, attempting to locate the driver. "We wanted to see if he's OK, and render aid if necessary," he said.

The incident happened at approximately 7:50 p.m., and emergency responders, including the CPD and Cullman Fire Rescue, have now cleared the scene and ended the search.

Duncan said that a driver's license was found at the scene, so the CPD has an idea of who the driver is. He was not found.

"Witnesses reported he was traveling in excess of 100 miles per hour," said Duncan. "They said he looked pretty injured. We have just ended the search. We believe he obtained a ride and left the area."

Anyone with information about the wreck is asked call the Cullman Police Department at 256-734-1434 and ask to speak to Officer Duncan.
