A motorcyclist was killed in a North Minneapolis crash on Wednesday.

Preliminary reports show two motorcyclists were headed south on the 2300 block of Penn Avenue North when a car pulled into the intersection around 4:30 p.m., according to police.

Police say the car hit both motorcycles and then drove off the road and into a fence in the yard of a nearby house.

All three people were taken to North Memorial Medical Center by ambulance. One of the motorcyclists did not survive his injuries and died at the hospital. Names have not been released.

Minneapolis Police Department’s Traffic Unit is reconstructing the crash and interviewing witnesses, and the incident is still under investigation.
