A bicyclist was airlifted to a Twin Cities hospital Tuesday after colliding with a vehicle in central Minnesota. 

The Stearns County Sheriff's Office reports that the crash happened just before 11:20 a.m. in Holdingford, at the intersection of the Wobegon Trail and Main Street. 

According to the report, a motorist in a 2004 Chevy Impala was southbound on Main Street from County Road 17 when the bicyclist, identified as Christopher Tacl, went through a stop sign on the trail and struck the vehicle on the passenger side. 

The driver and another bystander quickly provided medical assistance to Tacl until Holdingford Fire and Rescue arrived at the scene. Tacl was then transported from the scene by Mayo Ambulance and later airlifted to North Memorial in Robbinsdale. 

Tacl suffered life-threatening injuries in the crash and was listed in critical condition, according to the sheriff's office. 

"The Stearns County Sheriff’s Office reminds all trail users to use caution on area trails and to obey all stop signs and other safety signage," the release said.
