The motorcyclist continued onto Interstate 295 from I-64 and made it all the way to the Short Pump area of western Henrico before crashing near the Nuckols Road exit.

The motorcyclist, 26-year-old Christopher L. Fritter of Ruther Glen, was taken to a local hospital for treatment of serious injuries, police said. Fritter was charged with one felony count of eluding police and one count of riding a motorcycle without a valid operator’s license.
