The North Dakota Highway Patrol is searching for a motorcyclist involved in a pursuit Wednesday afternoon in Traill County.

On Wednesday, at 4:35 p.m., a Highway Patrol trooper attempted to stop two sport bike style motorcycles for traffic violations south of Hillsboro. The motorcycles were observed by the trooper near mile marker 93, traveling northbound on I-29 in traffic. The trooper attempted to stop both motorcycles, however, both fled northbound exceeding speeds of 130 miles per hour.

One of the motorcyclists attempted to exit the interstate at exit 100, but was traveling too fast, lost control and entered the east ditch. The driver was arrested and identified as 22-year-old Ethan Suhr, of West Fargo. Suhr was not injured and was taken to the Traill County Jail, and has been charged with fleeing, driving under suspension and operating a vehicle without liability insurance.

The second driver is still being sought. Anyone with information is asked to call the North Dakota Highway Patrol at 701-328-1081.
