Harley Davidson passenger killed, 2 others critically injured in crash in Goodhue County

The crash happened west of Treasure Island Resort & Casino.

A man and woman riding together on a Harley Davidson motorcycle were killed in a three-vehicle crash Wednesday evening in southeast Minnesota. 

The Minnesota State Patrol says the crash happened in Goodue County, when a Chrysler 200 traveling south on Hwy. 316 crossed into Hwy. 61 and struck the motorcycle, then hitting a Cadillac SRX. 

The driver of the Harley, 63-year-old Thomas Otte from Randolph, Minnesota, was taken to St. Marys Hospital in Rochester with life-threatening injuries.

The passenger, 74-year-old Patricia Anne Otte, also of Randolph, died at the scene. 

Neither victim on the motorcycle was wearing a helmet. 

The Chrysler 200 driver, a 44-year-old Hastings woman, suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported to North Memorial Hospital for treatment. A 45-year-old male passenger in the vehicle suffered injuries not considered life-threatening. 

Two people in the Cadillac SRX were not injured. 

The crash remains under investigation by the State Patrol.
