A motor vehicle accident led to the recovery of a stolen motorcycle Wednesday.
Denton police responded to an accident call in the area of Dallas Drive and the Interstate 35 service road. The accident involved a single motorcycle.
The officer determined the driver was traveling south on Dallas Drive and was attempting to make a right turn to the northbound service road. The man failed to control his speed and lost control of the motorcycle on the wet pavement, which was also covered in sand from the recent storm.
Gas from the motorcycle leaked and the bike caught fire, causing the man to sustain minor burns on his right leg. He was transported to Denton Regional Medical Center for treatment. During the investigation, the officer ran the VIN number of the vehicle and a hit came back out of the Phoenix Police Department showing the motorcycle was reported stolen in June of 2011.
The motorcycle was impounded and transported to Denton’s auto pound.
