A group of about 40 people came to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale on Sunday night to visit the injured, who are described as members of the Twin Cities Nigerian community.
In the three other fatal metro-area crashes, authorities said:
• A speeding motorcyclist, who at one point reached 130 miles per hour, crashed with the patrol in pursuit Sunday evening. The rider went from I-94 in Minneapolis to westbound I-694, then north on Brooklyn Boulevard. The motorcycle went through at least two red lights and hit a car near Welcome Avenue.
The motorcyclist, Tyron A. Somaiah, 23, of Crystal, was dead at the scene. The car’s driver was not critically hurt.
• A woman, 55, was run over Sunday afternoon at Lexington Avenue and Victoria Street in Shoreview. Her name has yet to be released.
• A woman crashed her vehicle into a tree and was killed on Shingle Creek Parkway in Brooklyn Center at about 1 a.m. Monday. Her name has yet to be released. She was not wearing a seat belt.
