At first the chase must have seemed like a scene out of an action movie. The police were in hot pursuit of a suspect on a speeding motorcycle twisting and weaving through the bustling streets of Buffalo, New York. And then tragedy struck: A graduating high school senior, just 18 years old, was later killed during this high-speed chase when he hit another car.
The fatal motorcycle accident happened during the morning rush hour just as people were on their way to school and work. The teen was pulled over after the police observed that he was driving without a rear license plate on the back of the motorcycle.
