MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police in Apple Valley say a motorcyclist is dead and a driver who ran a stop sign is to blame.

The crash happened around 5 o’clock Thursday afternoon at 155th Street and Embry Path, right behind the Target off of Pilot Knob Road.

Police say the driver of the motorcycle was 21, and despite lifesaving efforts being performed, he died at the scene.

Police say the 41-year-old driving the SUV that hit him suffered minor injuries.
