Two Wheelin’ in Robbinsdale

I arrived on scene minutes after the original call came out for a motorcycle accident with one trapped under a car. The State Patrol says two people are in critical condition after their motorcycle lost control and hit a power pole early Friday morning.

The accident happened around 12:30 a.m. when a motorcycle traveling at a high rate of speed near 42nd Avenue North and Welcome Avenue North lost control and hit a power pole.

A 29-year-old man from St. Louis Park was driving the motorcycle and a 23-year-old woman from Crystal was a passenger. Both were transported to North Memorial Medical Center. Welcome Avenue has several stop signs where they were traveling. I couldn’t imagine how they were riding in that area at such a high rate of speed.
