Cannon Falls man killed in motorcycle accident Thursday
Hastings Minnesota 745 Spiral Boulevard 55033

A man died Thursday after his motorcycle crashed in Cannon Falls Township, the Goodhue County Sheriff's Office reported.

Gerald Bastyr, 19, rural Cannon Falls, was westbound on County Road 17 when he lost control on an S-curve. It appeared as though the vehicle crossed the center line, went into the left ditch and hit an embankment, the sheriff's department said. Bastyr was possibly ejected and hit a tree limb.

Bastyr was transported to Cannon Falls Hospital by a private party. He was then transported to St. Marys Hospital in Rochester, where he died. Bastyr was wearing a helmet, officers said.
