A state patrol spokesman says a trooper tried to pull over a Harley-Davidson going more than 100 mph when the rider fled and crashed into another vehicle.

BROOKLYN CENTER, Minn. — A man in his 30s was killed Sunday evening after crashing his Harley-Davidson into another vehicle on I-694 while fleeing from state troopers.

According to information released by the Minnesota State Patrol, a trooper saw a Harley-Davidson motorcycle traveling at 107 mph on I-94 northbound and attempted to pull the rider over.

The 31-year-old rider from South St. Paul crossed traffic and was struck by a Mazda CX5 headed east. He was ejected and did not survive the crash. Officials have not released the man’s name.

The driver of the Mazda, a 52-year-old woman from White Bear Lake, was treated at the scene for non-life threatening injuries.
