At approximately 11:00 pm on April 29, 2018, the Scott County Sheriff’s Office received a call of a personal injury crash on 185th St East (CR21) near Hobby Hills Trail in Credit River Township.

The reporting party, Grant Skluzacek (18) of Prior Lake, stated he was driving his motorcycle westbound when he was struck from behind by another vehicle.  The suspect vehicle did not stop and fled the scene.  The reporting party suffered cuts to his arms and legs and chose to be transported by family to Fairview Ridges Hospital.

A piece of the suspect vehicle’s bumper was found wedged underneath the reporting party’s motorcycle (photo below).  Based on this piece of evidence, the suspect vehicle is believed to be a Honda with dark blue metallic paint.  It will have heavy front-end damage near the front passenger side tire.   

“The driver had an obligation to stay at the scene until the authorities arrived,” said Sheriff Luke Hennen. “Everyone on the road has a responsibility to drive safely and nobody deserves to be abandoned on the side of the road with injuries.” 

The Scott County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by Allina Ambulance and the Prior Lake Fire Department.  The Scott County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating this case.

The Scott County Sheriff’s Office requests the assistance from the public with the identification and location of the suspect driver and vehicle in this hit and run collision.  This investigation is ongoing and anyone with information regarding the incident is encouraged to contact the Scott County Sheriff’s Office at (952) 496-8132.
