A motorcyclist died in a crash near Treasure Island Resort & Casino late Tuesday night.
Red Wing Police Department issued a press release saying the crash happened at 11:56 p.m. at the intersection of Sturgeon Lake Road and NSP Road. Prairie Island Tribal Police responded to the scene, then requested assistance from Red Wing police and fire medics.
The motorcyclist, who has not been identified, was treated at the scene before being transported to Mayo Clinic Health Systems in Red Wing for further care in the emergency department.
The driver, however, died at the hospital. The individual was wearing a helmet.
An investigation is ongoing, though police say speed "appears to be a factor in the crash."
