RICHMOND, Va. — Police in Virginia say that a motorcyclist who was being pursued by a state trooper has died after crashing into a pickup truck.
WRIC reported Monday that police said the motorcyclist was driving more than 100 mph when he ran a red light outside of Richmond. Virginia State Police said that one of its troopers began to pursue the motorcyclist because the bike lacked a license plate.

Police said the motorcyclist was running a red light on Route 301 when he collided with a Nissan pickup truck.
