DEKALB COUNTY (WREX) -

A Dundee man is in custody after fleeing from deputies in Kane and DeKalb counties at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour.

Kane County officials contacted DeKalb deputies just before 9:30 a.m. Tuesday to report a man driving a motorcycle who fled from an officer at a high rate of speed. The motorcycle was found by DeKalb Sheriff Deputies on Plank Road, east of Route 23, but the police say the driver fled once more, again at speeds of 100 miles per hour.
