KSP: Man arrested after going 162mph on interstate

A Ft. Campbell, Kentucky man, who KSP says was driving his motorcycle 162 miles per hour, led troopers on a chase and was eventually arrested after crashing.

KSP says troopers observed a motorcycle westbound on I-24 in Lyon County.  Near the Lyon/Livingston County line, troopers observed the same motorcycle going 162mph in a 70mph zone.  

Troopers noticed the motorcycle exit the interstate near Grand Rivers.  Troopers say Chase Williams, 21, lost control in a curve and collided with an embankment on KY 453.  Williams then ran from the scene and into nearby woods.

Williams was arrested and charged with speeding, reckless driving, fleeing or evading police and three counts of wanton endangerment.
