— A state Highway Patrol trooper was involved in a wreck Tuesday morning during a pursuit of two men on dirt bikes in southeast Raleigh.

A Highway Patrol spokesman said the trooper tried to pull over the men, who were traveling east on Poole Road, for not wearing helmets.

She followed them through a dirt path on New Hope Road near Poole Road, where she hit a boulder and lost sight of them.

No one was injured.

Authorities have called off the search for the men, they said.
