HEBRON, Md.- A Pittsville man struck a pedestrian with his motorcycle before leading deputies on a high-speed chase through Wicomico County, according to the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said that shortly after 8 p.m. Tuesday they responded to Crooked Oak Lane near Hebron for the report of a collision between a motorcycle and a pedestrian. Reports to the Sheriff’s Office stated that the motorcycle operator left the area at a high rate of speed following the collision. A deputy contacted the motorcycle on Nanticoke Road and attempted to stop it, but police said the rider drove away at a high rate of speed in an attempt to elude the deputy. Police said the deputy attempted to follow the fleeing motorcycle until prudence caused the deputy to cease the pursuit on Old Ocean City Road in the area of Beaglin Park Drive.

Authorities said that a short while later a different deputy observed the same motorcycle riding on Walston Switch Road and attempted to stop him and pursued him until the rider decided to stop on Mt. Hermon Road in the area of Forest Grove Road near Parsonsburg.

Police said that during the chase, operator of the motorcycle was traveling at a high rate of speed and operating recklessly

The operator, 23-year-old Jean Carlo Cabrera-Oliveras, was taken into custody for both fleeing and eluding, leaving the scene of an accident involving injury and other traffic charges. He was ordered held in the Wicomico County Detention Center in lieu of $75,000 bond.
