A man trying to flee two chasing police motorcycles on his motorbike lost control and crashed into a concrete wall in Taba, Uruma City, about midnight on Saturday.

According to Uruma Police, the 31-year-old driver of the bike lost control and crashed when he tried to negotiate a right turn at a crossing while two police motorbikes were in pursuit. The man suffered a skull fracture and was taken to a hospital, but his injuries are not life-threatening.
