ST. PAUL -- A motorcyclist collided with a pedestrian in St. Paul on Wednesday night and both men died, according to police.

A 911 caller reported the crash near the Mississippi River in Dayton’s Bluff about 10:10 p.m. Officers responded to Warner Road, about a half-mile east of the U.S. 52 bridge. Paramedics pronounced the men dead at the scene.

A witness reported the motorcyclist was heading west on Warner Road when he struck a man who was walking down the center of the road, according to Steve Linders, a police spokesman. He also told officers he heard something hit his car, which police held at the scene to process for evidence.

Police said they will release the names of the men after the Ramsey County medical examiner’s office confirms their identities and authorities have notified their families.

Also on Wednesday night, a driver struck two pedestrians in Roseville. A 3-year-old girl died and a man was critically injured. The driver was cooperating with investigators.
