According to the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office, a 24-year-old Rice Lake Township resident was traveling north on Rice Lake Road on his motorcycle when he attempted to pass an SUV, also traveling northbound, as it made a left turn.

The motorcyclist struck the SUV, both vehicles went into the ditch, and the 24-year-old was pronounced dead the scene, even though he was wearing his helmet at the time of the accident.
