The Minneapolis Police Department said in a news release officers responded to the crash at Broadway Street, just west of University Avenue Northeast, around 6 p.m.

There they found an adult male with critical injuries lying in the road, the release says. He was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center and later died.

According to the investigation so far, the motorcyclist was heading east and collided with a westbound vehicle. How exactly it happened isn't said in the news release, but police note the driver of the other vehicle wasn't hurt, and is cooperating.

The identity of the motorcyclist, along with a cause of death, will be released by the medical examiner.

Fatalities on the road

It's been a deadly year for motorcyclists on Minnesota roads.

At least 51 motorcyclists have died on Minnesota roads this year, surpassing the 46 riders who were killed in all of last year.

Total traffic fatalities are up this year too. The Minnesota Toward Zero Deaths initiative says there have been at least 340 deaths on the road to date (though it's not clear if that number includes Sunday's fatality). Last year at this time there had been 299.
