Motorcycle crash on Hwy. 55 in Plymouth involves 'serious' injuries

A motorcycle-mini van crash Sunday night involved four people and what the State Patrol is calling "serious" injuries.

WCCO-TV has the scoop, reporting that the State Patrol learned a 2008 Chevy Impala was heading westbound on Highway 55 when it ran a red light and hit two vehicles that were heading southbound on Pinto Drive about 8 p.m. Sunday.

One of the two vehicles hit was a 2008 Kawasaki Road motorcycle with two people aboard, reports the station. The other vehicle hit was a 2011 Honda Fit. Authorities said a 65-year-old man and 58-year-old woman, both from Minnetonka, were on the motorcycle at the time of the crash.

The State Patrol has not revealed the nature of the injuries or how many of the four are injured, but has deemed it a "serious injury crash" reports 'CCO.

If it seems like there has been a number of accidents involving motorcycles this summer, that's because there has been.

You can track some of them on this web site.

In fact, last week, the Rochester Post-Bulletin reported a "deadly" July, noting 19 deaths that equaled 2006 for the highest number motorcycle-related fatalities for any July since 1997.

Last year, 10 motorcyclists died in July from fatal crashes, reports the paper.

And as St. Paul Pioneer Press columnist Joe Soucheray wrote last month, even some of the die-hard bike enthusiasts are having second thoughts.
