CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Authorities say a Cambridge man is facing attempted murder and related charges following a police chase that put a bicyclist in the hospital with serious injuries. 

The Dorchester County Sheriff's Office said the incident happened last Thursday in Eldorado, when a deputy on patrol tried to pull over a Kia Soul for failing to stop at a stop sign.

Authorities said that during the ensuing chase, the driver, identified as 20-year-old Kevon Jamar Spencer, and a passenger were seen throwing items out of the vehicle, including a Glock handgun.

Police said that during the chase, which went through the northern part of Dorchester County and onto Route 307, Spencer rammed three separate county sheriff's vehicles, leaving them damaged.

Authorities said that while on Route 307, Spencer drove onto the shoulder and hit a bicyclist who had stopped riding and was attempting to get off of the roadway. The cyclist was treated initially by a deputy sheriff and then by Dorchester EMS before being flown by Maryland State Police Medivac helicopter to Salisbury and later transferred to Baltimore. He is listed in serious condition.

The chase ended a short while later when the suspect vehicle went off of the road. Two of the occupants fled on foot and were apprehended after a short foot chase, according to police.

Spencer was charged with attempted murder, first-degree assault, four counts of second-degree assault, wearing and carrying a handgun in a motor vehicle, using a handgun in the commission of a crime of violence, four counts of reckless endangerment and four counts of malicious destruction of property and numerous traffic violations. He was ordered held on $250,000 bond.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
