A collision involving a speeding motorcyclist and man on a bicycle proved deadly last week. 

According to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office, 30-year-old Allan G. Lind, of St. Paul, died at Hennepin Healthcare on June 24, about 25 hours after he crashed into a bicyclist in Minneapolis. 

The crash happened just before 4:15 p.m. on June 23, with speed and alcohol believed to be contributing factors on the part of Lind, according to Minneapolis police spokesperson John Elder. 

The medical examiner determined the cause of death to be the result of multiple blunt force injuries, with the manner of death ruled an accident. 

Elder said the motorcyclist was northbound on 7th St. and traveling at a high rate of speed when he collided with the bicyclist, who was in the bike lane near Plymouth Ave. They collided mid-block on Emerson Ave, which is what 7th turns into north of Plymouth. 

Lind was transported to the hospital in grave condition and underwent surgery, but died at 9:25 p.m. June 24. The bicyclist suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries.
