Murray Man Attempts to Elude Trooper on Motorcycle

motorcycle accident red 300GRAVES COUNTY, Ky. (5/8/13) – On Tuesday, May 8, at approximately 7:51 PM, an accident occurred after a Mayfield Resident attempted to outrun a Kentucky State Police (KSP) Trooper in Graves County.
 
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 motorcycle traveled over the crest of a hill where the operator lost control and exited the left side of the roadway. The motorcycle traveled a short distance until it impacted a culvert, causing the operator to be ejected and thrown several feet.

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.
