A 22-year-old Minnetonka man died in a motorcycle crash on Interstate 394 in Golden Valley on Tuesday.
Endre John Thorkelson was on a Kawasaki motorcycle in the left lane of eastbound I-394 when the State Patrol says he tried to pass traffic and ran off the road, side-swiped the concrete median and crashed into a road sign.
The crash happened near the exit to Hwy. 100 around noon.
Thorkelson, who had a helmet on, was taken to North Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The State Patrol is investigating the crash.
