A St. Michael man suffered serious injuries Sunday afternoon in an accident caused after another driver allegedly ran a red light.
Michael J. Job, 50, St. Michael, was transported to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale after the crash with what Minnesota State Patrol troopers determined were “serious” injuries. His condition at this time is not known.
The crash occurred when a Honda Accord, driven by Matthew Johnson, 26, of Elk River, allegedly ran a red light at the intersection of Highway 241 (Central Avenue), heading southbound on County Highway 19 (Main Street).
The car collided with Job, who was riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle, and a Mazda 3s, driven by Elizabeth Vieyra, 36, of Arden Hills.
Job, who was broadsided in the crash, was not wearing a helmet, according to the State Patrol’s report.
It was the second accident involving a motorcycle/vehicle crash in St. Michael over the weekend. A Maple Grove man was injured and transported via Life Link to NMMC after a crash Saturday morning. His injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.
