Minnesota motorcycle accident kills Davenport couple

A motorcycle accident near Jackson, Minnesota resulted in the death of a couple from Davenport on June 22, according to a KWQC article.

The couple, identified as 67-year-old Richard Hedeen and 66-year-old Francoise Hedeen, were riding down Interstate 90 at around 6:30 p.m. when the crash occurred.

According to the preliminary investigations made by the Minnesota State Patrol, Richard Hedeen, who was driving the motorcycle, was headed west along the highway when for some unknown reason he lost control of the vehicle, causing it to traverse the center line in a construction zone near mile post 74. The motorcycle then collided with a minivan that was heading east along the same highway.

The couple on the motorcycle were both killed in the accident. The driver of the minivan was brought to a nearby local hospital for the treatment of his minor wounds. Three underage passengers were also safely brought out of the vehicle after the accident. They were apparently unharmed in the collision.
