Annandale man dies after motorcycle collides with car
A man has died after the motorcycle he was on collided with a car Sunday afternoon in Waite Park.
According to Waite Park Police Chief Anthony Reznicek, the crash happened shortly before 3 p.m. near the intersection of Second Avenue South and Second Street.
Witnesses told officers that a Honda Civic, which was driven by an 81-year-old, was leaving a parking lot and turning north onto Second Avenue from the west side of the road. That’s when a motorcycle that was southbound on Second Avenue collided with the Civic.
The driver of the motorcycle, identified as 30-year-old Brett Iees, from Annandale, was taken to a hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries. However, he later died.
Police say the driver of the Civic wasn’t hurt.
While the investigation remains active, Reznicek says speed may have played a role in the crash.
