East Lansing Man Dies In Fatal High Speed Chase

UPDATE: A 20-year-old East Lansing man is dead after a high speed motorcycle chase on Interstate 96.

The Livingston County Sheriff's Department says the suspect, Carl Stamm, is from East Lansing and not South Lyon as originally reported.

Deputies say Stamm, who led police on a chase topping speeds of 100 miles an hour, struck the end of a Fowlerville police car and was pronounced dead at the scene. The officer in the car was not hurt.

The west-bound portion of the highway was closed for five hours as deputies investigated the scene.

 

ORIGINAL STORY: Authorities say a 20-year-old motorcycle rider from South Lyon has died after crashing into the rear of a police cruiser on Interstate 96 in Livingston County.

Sheriff Bob Bezotte tells the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell that the crash occurred about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday near Fowlerville after a sheriff's deputy clocked the motorcyclist traveling at 104 mph. He says a second deputy's radar showed the motorcyclist at 114 mph.

Bezotte says the department alerted Fowlerville police. He says a Fowlerville officer got on the interstate ahead of the motorcyclist and the patrol car was struck.

Authorities closed a portion of westbound I-96 near Fowlerville for the investigation. The road has since re-opened.
