A pedestrian died and a motorcyclist was injured in a crash in Minneapolis Monday afternoon, police said. 

The preliminary investigation points to the pedestrian, a man in his 50s, crossing Olson Memorial Highway on Bryant Avenue around 4:34 p.m. "against the traffic control device," police said. 

The motorcyclist was traveling east on Olson Memorial Highway and "attempted to avoid" the person, but "despite evasive maneuvers," the motorcyclist hit the man, sending both men to the ground. 

When police arrived at the scene, they found the pedestrian with "grave" injuries and the motorcyclist with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. 

They were both brought to the hospital via ambulance, and the pedestrian later died, police said.

This is the 14th traffic-related death in Minneapolis this year.
