Constable charged in Harrisburg motorcycle crash last year

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A constable has been charged in a motorcycle crash last year in Harrisburg, according to the Dauphin County District Attorney’s Office.

Online court documents state Keegan Jones is charged with aggravated assault, aggravated assault by vehicle, recklessly endangering another person, official oppression, reckless driving and disregarding a single traffic lane.

The crash happened Sept. 23 last year near the intersection of North 6th and Maclay streets.

State police said a motorcyclist was fleeing a trooper on Interstate 81 before Jones intervened.

According to a police news release, the pursuing trooper was stuck behind another car on Maclay Street as the motorcycle turned onto 6th Street. Jones, who was not involved in the chase nor in radio contact with the trooper, attempted to intervene and slow the bike so the trooper could catch up.

At that point, the motorcyclist crashed into the side of the Jones’ car, police said.

The motorcyclist was transported to Penn State Hershey Medical Center.

Jones was not injured.

All charges against him have been waived for court.
