Newport, MNN (KROC AM News) - A St Paul man is the latest to die in a Minnesota motorcycle accident.

The most recent fatal motorcycle accident to be reported by the Minnesota State Patrol happened Friday afternoon in a Twin Cities suburb.

The State Patrol says 40-year-old William Moua was riding on Highway 61 in Newport around 3:00 pm when he “collided with the rear of a minivan.” Moua died at the scene.

The minivan was driven by 29-year-old Breanna Heron of Cottage Grove. There was another adult and two children in her vehicle. One of the children - a 7-year-old girl - was taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

At least two other motorcyclists were killed on Minnesota roads earlier this week.
