MOUNT STERLING, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky State Police say a man has been hit on Interstate 64 while trying to run away from a trooper.
Police spokesman Endre Samu said that the trooper observed 21-year-old Steven Reilly driving a motorcycle at a high rate of speed Friday evening on Interstate 64, and so pulled him over near Mount Sterling.
Samu told WKYT-TV the trooper and Reilly got into an argument and the Reilly pushed the motorcycle in the trooper's direction and ran. He tried to cross the interstate, but was hit by a van. Samu told the station that police are unaware of any outstanding warrants, so they aren't sure why Reilly fled.
Police say Reilly was listed in serious but stable condition on Saturday at the University of Kentucky hospital in Lexington.
