Our thoughts and prayers go out to HUBBARD Talk KSTP-A/ST. PAUL-MINNEAPOLIS PD STEVEN J. KONRAD, who was involved in a bad accident and is in critical condition. THE MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE reports KONRAD, who was riding his motorcycle and wearing a helmet, hit a mattress on Interstate 94 in ST. PAUL and was thrown from his bike.
The crash happened YESTERDAY (3/18) about 6p on eastbound I-94. The mattress, left or lost by another eastbound vehicle, was in the left-hand lane, State Patrol Lt. ERIC ROESKE said. Another vehicle was able to swerve and miss the mattress, but the 2004 YAMAHA that KONRAD was riding, hit it and crashed, ROESKE said.
KONRAD, 46, is currently at REGIONS HOSPITAL in ST. PAUL. ALL ACCESS hears that while still sedated, his prognosis is good and improving.
