Franklin County Man Crashes Motorcycle After Police Pursuit

A Franklin County man was injured Monday after crashing his motorcycle in a wooded area in Warren County.
According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, 42 year-old Robert Langford of Belvidere, Tn. was observed speeding on his 2006 Kawasaki motorcycle on Highway 70 going westbound. When a trooper attempted to make a traffic stop, the cyclist turned around and headed outbound on Highway 70 and turned on to Highway 30 going into Van Buren County. The pursuit eventually led back into Warren County, where Langford lost control of his motorcycle, went off the road and crashed into the woods.
Authorities say Langford was driving on a revoked license and was wanted in other counties on charges that included aggravated assault.
Langford was taken by EMS to River Park Hospital.
The incident remains under investigation.
