A 54-year-old Isanti man died Wednesday after he was broad-sided by a 17-year-old driver in Anoka County, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

The collision happened Monday at the intersection of Highway 47 and Ambassador Boulevard in St. Francis.

According to the State Patrol, Kenneth Miller was on a motorcycle in the intersection around 7:30 p.m., and a pickup truck driven by a 17-year-old was heading west on Ambassador Boulevard and didn't see him.

The truck hit Miller, who was not wearing a helmet. Miller was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center where he died two days later, according to a statement by the Hennepin County Medical examiner released Friday.

The driver of the pickup and a 17-year-old passenger didn't have any apparent injuries.

The Anoka County Sheriff's Office assisted the State Patrol.
