A man was killed and a woman seriously injured in a crash involving a motorcycle and a semi Wednesday afternoon in Bloomington. 

The fatal accident happened just before 5 p.m. near the intersection of York Avenue and Baillif Place. A report from Bloomington police says the tractor trailer and motorcycle collided, with a 65-year-old male driving the motorcycle suffering fatal injuries and the adult female passenger taken to Hennepin County Medical Center with serious injuries.
