Driver critically injured, motorcyclist killed after attempted escape from cops leads to crash in Jackson.
Motorcyclist Anthony Griffin was killed after an attempted escape from police proved fatal. The crash occurred on South New Prospect Road, shortly after Griffin ran a red light on Brewers Bridge Road. He was immediately spotted by an officer, who turned on his lights to alert and stop the motorcyclist. Rather than slow down, Griffin accelerated in an attempt to escape, only to collide with a car, driven by Jackson resident Eric Larson.
Larson was attempting a left-hand turn when the motorcycle crashed into him. Griffin was pronounced dead at the scene and Larson is hospitalized at Jersey Shore University Medical Center with unspecified injuries where he remains in critical condition at the time of this writing.
