A police officer is fighting for his life after crashing his motorcycle while off duty Saturday evening.
The Minnesota State Patrol says the incident happened at 7:12 p.m. on Hwy. 19 in New Prague, when Scott Weiers crashed his Honda motorcycle into the center median of a roundabout.
The 48-year-old from Shakopee was taken to North Memorial Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.
FOX 9 reports that he works for the Shakopee Police Department.
The State Patrol says that Weiers was not wearing a helmet, and that conditions were dry at the time.
It also says that alcohol was involved, though that doesn't necessarily mean he was over the limit.
