A man on a motorcycle caught the attention of Bellaire police. He then took off, leading officers on a chase. It all started when a motorcyclist started circling the scene of a traffic stop in which Bellaire officer had a different driver pulled over. Police became curious as to why the motorcyclist was circling them, so they tried to pull him over. That's when the chase began.

The chase was brief and ended on Westpark near Edloe when the motorcyclist hit a curb and then a tree, throwing the rider from the motorcycle. That driver landed in the street and suffered massive head trauma.

Authorities say the motorcyclist is in his mid 20s and was not wearing a helmet. The man is listed in critical condition.
