Motorcyclist In Critical Condition After Crash On I-494
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 31-year-old man is in critical condition after an accident on Interstate 494 at Fish Lake Road.
The crash closed southbound lanes of 494 to 94 from Bass Lake Road, while authorities worked to help the victims.
Douglas Johnson, of Fargo, N.D. was driving a 1999 Honda MC motorcycle when he rear-ended a 1993 Nissan Maxima.
According to the State Patrol, Abu-Ria Mahmmoud, 18, of Brooklyn Park — who was driving the Nissan — was attempting to change lanes when he noticed the car in front of him was also moving over. Mahmmoud hit his breaks, which caused Johnson to rear-end him. Johnson is currently in critical condition.
Mahmmoud was treated at the scene and released.
The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the accident.
