Bicyclist killed, motorcycle passenger injured in Minneapolis crash

Police say the man on the bicycle went through a red light.

A man riding his bike was hit and killed at the intersection of Franklin Avenue and Hennepin Avenue South late Monday night. 

Police say the accident occurred just after 11:30 p.m. when the bicyclist went through a red light and ran into a motorcyclist, which threw him from the bicycle onto the road, where he was struck by a following car.

The man died from his injuries at Hennepin County Medical Center, with a motorcycle passenger transported to the same hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening. 

Officers shut down the intersection to investigate and learned that the victim was going westbound on Franklin Avenue when he ran the red light at Hennepin. 

Both the motorcyclist and driver of the car stopped and cooperated with officers. Neither appeared to be speeding and alcohol was not a factor. 

The victim's identity will be released pending review by the Medical Examiner's Office.
