— The Highway Patrol was investigating after a motorcyclist crashed while being chased by Wake County deputies Monday night.

Deputies said they noticed a motorcyclist driving recklessly at Mackinac Island Lane and Battle Bridge Road in Raleigh. The man failed to stop, got on Interstate 40 West and crashed near the Durham County line, sheriff's officials said.

Deputies arrested Justin Emmanuel Jenkins, 28, of 625 Red Carriage Ave. in Durham, and charged him with driving without a license, fleeing to elude arrest and resisting arrest.
