A motorcyclist was seriously injured after running a red light and hitting a Ford Fusion. He was transported to Baylor Scott and White Hillcrest where he underwent emergency surgery due to massive internal injuries.

The motorcyclist, 27-year-old Gregory Jefferson, had ran another red light before hitting the car.

Officials added that the man was going 65 mph in an area with a 30 mph speed limit.

An officer had attempted to pull over the motorcyclist around 8:45 a.m. Tuesday morning, but did not pursue him when he sped off.

The accident happened near Clay Ave. and 18th St in Waco.

The driver of the Ford Fusion had no injuries. The car was significantly damaged.
