Police cruiser camera footage from fatal motorcycle crash in Hamilton

VIDEO: Police cruiser camera shows chase, crash in fatal motorcycle incident

FIRST REPORT: 1 dead, 2 charged after motorcycle crash in Hamilton

The video above from the Hamilton Police Department captures police officers’ initial traffic stop of three motorcyclists. Then, after fleeing that traffic stop, a police cruiser camera captures one of the motorcycles crashing into an embankment at a high rate of speed.

The man who crashed died at the scene, police said, despite officers’ attempts to administer lifesaving measures. 

Another motorcyclist at the crash scene attempted to flee on foot, but officers caught him after a short chase.

The two surviving motorcyclists — Kyle Ramey, 27, of Harrison, and Anastasio Camacho, 31, of Versailles, Ind. — were taken into custody and are charged with obstruction of business and failure to comply.
