Officials have released the identity of the motorcyclist killed in a collision with a pickup truck at a central Minnesota intersection.
Ricky Lee Karsch, 57, of Rice, Minn., suffered numerous injuries in the crash near Foley shortly after 6 p.m. Sunday and died that evening, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office said Thursday.
According to the Benton County Sheriff's Office:
Deputies arrived at NE. 165th Avenue and 65th Street in Maywood Township and joined witnesses in providing immediate aid to Karsch. He was taken by air ambulance to North Memorial Health Hospital and died there.
The pickup driver, Ryan Michael Renstrom Jr., 20, of Maple Grove, was slightly hurt. Two adults in his vehicle were uninjured.
Karsch was heading west on 65th Street and had the right of way. Renstrom, who was pulling a boat, obeyed his stop sign while on southbound 165th but proceeded into the intersection. A witness told law enforcement that Karsch attempted to avoid the crash but struck the pickup driver's door.
