KSP Trooper Trevor Pervine was traveling south on US 45 when he attempted to stop a motorcycle, also traveling south at a high rate of speed. When Trooper Pervine activated his emergency equipment, the operator of the motorcycle accelerated in an attempt to elude Trooper Pervine.

The operator of the motorcycle, later identified as 20-year-old Jake Wrye, of Murray, was transported by Mayfield-Graves County EMS to Jackson Purchase Medical Center and was later airlifted to Vanderbilt Hospital.
 
Wrye was cited to court for DUI, Speeding, Reckless Driving, No Insurance, Disregarding a Traffic Light, Trafficking in Controlled Substance (Methamphetamine), Trafficking in Controlled Substance (unspecified), Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Fleeing/Evading Police 1st Degree.
 
Trooper Pervine was assisted at the scene by the Graves County Sheriff’s Office, Mayfield-Graves County Rescue and Mayfield Police Department.
