The South Lake Minnetonka Police Department seeks a suspect who was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run crash at 7:59 p.m., July 19.

The crash occurred at the intersection of eastbound Highway 7 and Vine Hill Road in Shorewood.

A motorcyclist, who was stopped at a red light, was sideswiped by a SUV or crossover-type vehicle which approached from behind at a high speed.

The suspect vehicle passed between the motorcyclist and a second vehicle stopped in a adjacent lane, running the red light and continuing eastbound on Highway 7.

It’s believed the suspect vehicle sustained damage to the front passenger side door.

The department seeks more information for anyone who may have witnessed the crash, or has information regarding the suspect vehicle or driver.
