A Blaine resident has died from injuries sustained during a motorcycle crash last week in Hudson.
Jamie Brown, 49, was traveling north on County Road A on Tuesday when, after accelerating to pass stoplights at Highway 12 and County Road U, he lost control as the road curved and entered a ditch, witnesses told authorities.
Brown, who the St. Croix County Sheriff's Office says was not wearing a helmet, was transported to Regions Hospital in St. Paul with life-threatening injuries by Lakeview EMS.
He died Thursday from his injuries, police said.
The St. Croix County Sheriff's Office continues to investigate the case, which marks the county's second traffic fatality this year.
