A 29-year-old Linwood man died in a crash involving a motorcycle and car on Saturday, May 12 south of Rush City. Chisago County Dispatch was alerted to the crash around 5:35 p.m.
Witnesses told responding officers a Dodge Durango pulling a boat was southbound on Forest Boulevard and slowed to make a left turn on 490th Street in Rushseba Township. Traveling behind was another car, and a motorcycle passed it. Witnesses said the man driving the motorcycle tried to swerve back into the southbound lane in-between the car and boat when he struck the rear corner of the boat.
The man, Keith Robert Hall, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Nobody else was injured as a result of the crash. Hall was reportedly not wearing any protective equipment. Speed and inattentive driving may have been a factor in the crash. The Chisago County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident.
Funeral services for Hall will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, May 17 at Linwood Covenant Church in Linwood Township.
