A St. Michael man is dead after trying to pass a series of vehicles on Hennepin County Road 116 near Pheasant Acres Golf Club Friday afternoon, according to police reports and a detailed account in the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Bruce E. Passer, 38, was killed when he hit a car that moved into his path as he was traveling northbound in the southbound lane, south of Fletcher.
According to Corcoran Police Chief Sean Gormley, Passer was attempting to pass a series of vehicles–10 to 12 of them–when one of the cars turned in front of him, trying to head west into the entrance of the golf club. Passer’s motorcycle hit the wheels of the turning car.
Gormley told the Star Tribune’s Paul Walsh that Passer had a list of traffic violations, and was riding with a suspended license. He said Passer was moving in excess of the 55 MPH speed limit on the road.
No one else was hurt in the accident.
