Wichita Falls police say a high speed chase ended when a man missed a sharp curve in the road and was launched from his motorcycle into a field.

Police say officers first spotted the motorcycle rider downtown popping wheelies, so they attempted to pull him over.  They say that is when he took off.

Police say the chase took them all the way to City View Drive and Kiel Lane and that's when police say the rider missed a curve in the road and went through a ditch and was tossed from his bike.

The rider was taken to United Regional for treatment for what appeared to be serious injuries.

The investigation continues into why the motorcycle rider tried to run from police.
