Motorcyclist injured in Poulsbo after WSP chase


A motorcyclist was injured at the Johnson Way and Highway 305 intersection while evading Washington State Patrol Saturday night.

According to a memo from State Patrol, the motorcyclist was southbound on Highway 305 at a high rate of speed when it failed to negotiate the curve and struck a barrier at the construction of the Johnson Way roundabout.

The motorcyclist, identified as James D. Schuyleman, 33, of Sequim, was ejected to the west side of the construction project with his 2005 Suzuki GSX1300 coming to rest on the east side of the road.

Schuyleman was taken to St. Michaels hospital after sustaining injuries. His condition was unavailable.

He could be facing charges for speeding, driving without a license, driving without an ignition interlock device, reckless driving and felony eluding, the memo says.
