The Minnesota State Patrol is asking for the public’s help in locating a vehicle that fled the scene of a fatal crash Saturday night along Highway 71 north of Sauk Center.
The Minnesota State Patrol was called to the crash site at about 9:45 p.m. Aug. 24.
The initial investigation showed that a northbound motorcycle’s passenger fell off the motorcycle near the entrance to the Grey Stone Golf Course. The male was then subsequently struck by a passing motorist traveling north on Highway 71.
The driver of the striking vehicle did not stop at the scene of the crash. It is believed that the suspected vehicle sustained damage to the front bumper area. Debris from the scene suggests a Buick Regal as the suspected vehicle.
If anyone has any information that would help the investigation, please contact the Minnesota State Patrol St. Cloud District Office at (320) 223-6666.
