Man dies after motorbike accident while running from cops in Bridgewater

? A man was found dead in Bridgewater Sunday after police say he tried to outrun authorities, crashed his motorbike and hid.

Residents at the Beacon Hill condos say they heard a loud commotion about 5:00 a.m. Investigators say the noise was a 22-year-old man who was trying to lose police. Instead, authorities say he became airborne and slammed into a stairwell. Police believe he survived the crash, but kept running from police and hid behind some trees. Officers found his body once the sun came up.

Authorities have not released the man?s name or said why he was being pursued.
