Biker crash near train

February 27, 2006

Albany -- An Albany man is injured, and faces dozens of traffic charges, after he crashed his motorcycle as he ran from Sheriff's Deputies.

50 year old Tommy Edward Jones is being treated for ankle and rib injuries. He reached speeds of nearly sixty miles per hour running from Deputies. Jones finally crashed his motorcycle on Third Avenue trying to stop where this train blocked the road.

Jones initially took off when customers at a store on North Jefferson flagged down the Deputy. They said Jones was drunk and buying more beer. Lt. Craig Dodd of the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office said "The Deputy got out of the vehicle and attempted to stop him. The gentleman drove off, immediately ran a stop sign right there at Eight and Jefferson. The Deputy tried to stop him with blue lights and siren."

The Deputy followed Jones for several blocks before he crashed. They found a can of malt liquor still on the handlebars.

Jones will be charged with attempting to elude officers, speeding, and running three stop signs.

He'll also be charged with D.U.I., if blood tests show he was drunk.
