A trooper with the N.C. Highway Patrol crashed his cruiser while chasing a motorcycle on Interstate 485 Wednesday morning.

The incident was reported around 8 a.m. at mile marker 18, Oakdale Road, on the I-485 inner loop, according to troopers.

The trooper was persuing a motorcycle that was traveling over 100 miles per hour. As they neared the exit, a Toyota Camry was merging into traffic, forcing the trooper to swerve into the median to avoid hitting it.
