Molino Motorcyclist Charged With Fleeing From Deputy At Speeds Over 100 MPH

June 30, 2021

A motorcyclist is charged with allegedly fleeing from a deputy in Cantonment at over 100 mph.

Tyler Austin Driver, age 22 of Molino, was charged with felony fleeing an officer.

An Escambia County Sheriff’s Office deputy watched Driver, wearing a bright red shirt, traveling westbound at a high speed on Plaza Road North in Cantonment on a white Kawasaki motorcycle. The deputy then observed  Driver run a stop sign and head westbound on Santa Rosa Road at speeds in excess of 100 mph, according to an arrest report.

The deputy activated his emergency lights and siren and attempted unsuccessfully to catch up with the motorcycle. Driver allegedly accelerated to over 100 miles per hour after turning onto Jacks Branch Road from Muscogee Road.

The deputy went to the area of the 1400 block of River Annex Road where he found the motorcycle and Driver, who was still wearing the same red shirt.

Driver was released from the Escambia County Jail on a $3,000 bond. He also received a traffic citation for running a stop sign.

    No big deal…really! Not only could he have killed himself but he could have hurt someone else. serious..on a motorcycle or car. We have way to many deadly accidents up that way. People need to slow down an remember others are on the road too.

    I’m not checking twice for motorcycles, I’m checking twice for all vehicles and if you’re not making yourself visible and riding in a legal and predictable manner, then I win and you lose.

    @Just Saying
    I gotcha Bro! And I do understand your comment, and watch for Motorcycles on the roads, because many of the riders are crazy. Like guns it is not the equipment but the operators.
    It is interesting to note. the median age of motorcyclist has risen to 50 and is expected to rise even higher but the age group that is involved in more fatal accidents is the 20-29 group. Yes, fatalities among the 50 and older are up but that is due to the increasing numbers of the group. Younger riders still make up the higher number of fatal accidents. This might have something to do with the fact the part of the brain that discerns risk, prefrontal cortex, is not fully developed until age 25.

    “Well seems to me this ain’t news at all. Why blow this out of proportion. Okay he got a ticket big deal !!! Look don’t make it worse than it is !!! Seems like northescambia could find real news !!!!!”

    Bill Tyler — you might want to work on that reading comprehension. Please have someone read the story aloud to you.

    He was charged with s FELONY. He also put the lives of hundreds of people in danger

    100 plus mph? He’s not a “good” rider, he’s a “lucky” rider. One slight mistake and he would have been a grease spot on the pavement.

    This guy has been a menace for a while now. Very dangerous on the road. He has no regard for anyone else on the road.
    Just another selfish, arrogant, entitled, participation trophy brat.

    Nearly every morning on my morning commute I encounter another crotch rocket-riding idiot, weaving in and out of traffic, passing on the right or center turn lane, and easily doubling or tripling the speed limit. All this while surrounded by folks in cars and trucks, some half asleep and some just not paying attention. The ‘look twice-watch out for motorcycles’ crowd means well, but a lot of these morons are just a Darwin away from taking themselves out. If you don’t care for your life, I assure you the drivers around you care less. Slow down, kid and live to be an old motorcycle driver.
