Motorcyclist killed by fleeing suspect in Wisconsin identified as Stillwater father-of-two

The 39-year-old was out for a ride on Saturday afternoon.

The motorcyclist who was killed by a suspect fleeing police in western Wisconsin on Saturday has been identified. 

Dustin Edward Kalland, 39, of Stillwater, was among several motorcyclists riding through Deer Park in St. Croix County at the time of the crash. Kalland and the others were making a left-hand turn from Hwy. 46 when a suspect fleeing police in a 2013 Jeep Liberty fatally struck Kalland. 

According to his obituary, Kalland leaves behind a son, daughter, and his parents. 

A lifelong friend of Kalland's told KARE 11 that having to explain to his children "why dad's not at the birthday or why dad's not at Christmas will be hard." 

The incident started at 4:12 p.m. in the 2000 block of STH 65 in nearby Star Prairie Township when an individual called police to report that a person with a no-contact order against them had taken their Jeep without permission, according to the St. Croix County Sheriff's Office. 

Deputies located the suspect in the Jeep north of New Richmond, which led to a chase that went east on Hwy. 64 and then north on Hwy. 46 before the suspect collided with Kalland while attempting to pass several vehicles on the left. 

The suspect fled on foot after the crash, and he was arrested after a short chase on foot. 

The identity of the suspect will be released once formal charges are filed.
