MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – One person was killed after an accident involving a motorcycle in southern Minnesota on Monday, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

Authorities responded to a crash at about 3:46 p.m. Monday on Highway 22 and Victory Drive in Blue Earth County. When authorities arrived, a 35-year-old from Vernon Center later identified as Jeni L. Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities said the victim was riding a 1997 Harley Davidson that was heading southbound on Highway 22 and approaching Victory Drive. A 2009 Ford Focus was heading eastbound on Victory Drive and turning northbound on Highway 22 when the motorcycle braked to avoid a collision. The motorcycle lost control and the victim was ejected.
