Two Die While Fleeing on Stolen Motorcycle

KSAL StaffJuly 14, 2014

Wichita police say two people died when the stolen motorcycle they were riding collided with a vehicle.

Police identified the dead on Monday as Matthew K. Tanges and Angela M. Watson, both 26.

Wichita police Lt. Todd Ojile said a Sedgwick County sheriff’s deputy was following the motorcycle late Sunday but was not actively pursuing it. The speeding motorcycle ran a stop sign and a light before hitting the vehicle. Tanges and Watson were thrown off the motorcycle and later died at a Wichita hospital.

The driver of the car was not injured.

Ojile says the motorcycle was stolen last week.

Department of Corrections records indicate Tanges was convicted of fleeing/attempting to elude law enforcement three times since 2006.
