Police are looking for a man who crashed a stolen motorcycle Thursday and left in another vehicle before deputies could arrive.

The motorcyclist was riding south on Combs Road at about 4:30 p.m. when he accelerated quickly after coming to a stop at the County Line Road intersection. The driver lost control of the motorcycle and swerved into a sport utility vehicle stopped at the intersection, a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office report said.

The motorcyclist told the other driver he didn’t have insurance. A few minutes later, a black truck pulled up and the motorcyclist got in the vehicle, which drove west on County Line Road, the report said.

The motorcycle, a blue Harley-Davidson that was left at the scene, was stolen from IndyWest Harley-Davidson in Plainfield, the report said.
