GENOA — A 33-year-old Kellogg man was killed following a single vehicle motorcycle crash Sunday, Aug. 14, 2022, in Olmsted County, according to Olmsted County Sheriff's Lt. Lee Rossman.

Kurtis Zomak was found deceased by deputies who arrived at the crash around 12 p.m. His passenger, a 37-year-old woman from Millville, was critically injured in the crash and was eventually transported to Regions Hospital in St. Paul, according to Rossman.

The Rochester Police Department clarified that although the Mayo scare originated because of wrong information, local law enforcement is not limited to handling one crisis at a time.
Charges related to the incident have been recommended to the Olmsted County Attorney's Office.

Rossman said it appeared the vehicle was braking into a curve while headed eastbound on 75th Street Northwest when the motorcycle may have been laid down and ran into a sign just east of Genoa.

Witnesses told law enforcement that they used water bottles to extinguish the flames on the motorcycle and lifted it off the woman.
