MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 53-year-old man from Cedar died last Thursday after hitting a dog with his motorcycle back on Aug. 10, according to police.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s office identified the man Monday as Thomas Novak of Cedar.

Police said the accident happened at about 9:13 p.m. on the 3500 block of Viking Boulevard NW in Oak Grove. Novak died six days after the accident at Hennepin County Medical Center.

Authorities said the dog was also killed in the crash. The medical examiner’s office said Novak died of multiple blunt force injuries.

The cause of the crash and what led up to it is still under investigation by the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office. It’s also unclear of Novak was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
