Man killed in I-35 motorcycle crash in Duluth

A man was killed after his motorcycle collided with a cement wall along I-35 in Duluth, Minnesota early Sunday morning.

Minnesota State Patrol says the victim, Ryan Scott Mathisen, age 32, was headed north on I-35 near Lake Avenue in Duluth when the crash happened around 2 a.m.

Troopers say, after hitting the wall, Mathisen was thrown from the bike and later pronounced dead.
