A motorcyclist was taken to a hospital with serious injuries after crashing in Waite Park on Monday.

According to Waite Park Police, a Stearns County deputy saw a motorcycle making unsafe lane changes in the 1400 block of Division Street at 9:19 p.m. The deputy activated his squad's lights but the motorcyclist pulled into a parking lot and then fled out of the lot at a high rate of speed, going the wrong way on Division Street.

The deputy lost sight of the motorcycle and didn't pursue, police said.

A short time later, officers were notified that a motorcycle crashed near 58 Division Street West. Authorities determined it was the same motorcycle that fled from the deputy.
