The Minnesota State Patrol is calling a crash that happened just outside of Gaylord Thursday night an incident of hit and run, and is asking for the public’s help in locating one of the vehicles involved.
29-year-old John Byro of Madelia was listed in critical condition Friday after his motorcycle struck the back of an unknown vehicle at the intersection of Highways 5 and 19 at around 10pm Thursday.
The other vehicle did not remain at the scene of the crash, but authorities believe the driver knew that something had happened, and is being sought for questioning.
The vehicle is believed to be a light-colored passenger car or SUV, and would likely have damage to its rear end or rear quarter-panel.
Anyone who witnessed the crash, or has other information on the incident, is asked to contact the State Patrol at (507)389-1172.
