A motorcyclist was killed in a crash in Minneapolis just moments after another crash in which he struck a Metro Transit bus.
Minneapolis Police Department investigators say it received a report of a crash between a motorcycle and a bus at 32nd Street East and Minnehaha Avenue in south Minneapolis just after 8 p.m.
Officers found the bus was damaged, but nobody was injured, and there was no sign of a motorcycle at the crash scene.
It's emerging that the motorcyclist struck the bus and then rode away, getting to 35th Street East and Minnehaha, where he ran a red light and struck a passenger vehicle, police said.
The motorcyclist, a man in his late 50s, was treated at the scene before being taken to a hospital, where he later died.
The man's identity will be released at a later stage by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner.
There have been 86 deaths on Minnesota roads so far in 2022, compared to 122 at the same time in 2021.
