The 2006 Honda VC 64 appears to have run off the road near the intersection of the 275 Bypass and Alabama 21 Sunday night. The vehicle struck a power pole and the driver fled the scene of the accident, according to Chief Jason Busby.
The motorcycle was recovered, but the plate with the vehicle identification number etched into it had been sanded away.
Captain John McCoy said Thursday that the motorcycle had eventually been identified, and that it had been reported stolen in Georgia. The search for the driver continues.
