A Starbuck Police Department patrol car was involved in a crash with a motorcycle on the evening of July 4th. The patrol car was being driven by 28-year-old Officer Ryan Franks, who was driving south on South Main Street when he observed a traffic violation from a vehicle traveling north. As Officer Franks pulled to the right side of the road and attempted to make a U-turn, with emergency lights allegedly activated, to pursue the vehicle, he collided with a motorcycle, driven by 60 year old Dale Uhden of Alexandria, who was also driving southbound.

The case is under investigation by the Pope County Sheriff’s Office.
