Kody Michae Luckenbaugh, 21, pushed his luck with police by fleeing an attempted traffic stop after speeding around a corner at York and Granite Station roads in Straban Township on Wednesday just before 7 a.m.

During the pursuit that followed, he traveled at speeds over 110 mph on his 2013 Yamaha motorcycle.
