Trooper crashes bike enroute to chase

They kind of glossed over it but I bet he didn't get cited:

I wonder if he maybe wasn't Albemarle, since they have ABS-equipped R1200RTs.

My wife was going south on 151 when the cop was going north, blue lights flashing. According to my wife, he was riding the center line and cars were diving for the ditch. Her impression was that he was riding recklessly and going way too fast for conditions, and she wasn't surprised to find out that he crashed further up 151.

Could she tell what he was riding? She should post a comment to the article online. :)

She only knows my bikes by color. She does, however, know exactly how much each one cost.
