MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A motorcyclist is dead after losing control and being thrown from his bike in Plymouth, Minn.
The Minnesota State Patrol said 58-year-old Gene Kokesh, of Minnetonka, was exiting from southbound 169 to Bass Lake Road when he lost control, crossed the westbound lanes and jumped the median. Officials say he was going too fast.
Kokesh was thrown from his bike and both he and the bike collided with a vehicle driving eastbound on Bass Lake Road. The driver of that vehicle was not injured.
