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.

Keith Ellison in a lawsuit filed Wednesday, Oct. 5, claims Fleet Farm was negligent and aided and abetted the straw purchases by ignoring “hallmark red flags and warning signs that certain buyers were straw purchasers.” Fleet Farm denies wrongdoing.

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.
