A motorcyclist killed in a crash Saturday in Eden Prairie has been identified as Tyrone Demitrius Alexander Ellis.
Ellis, 28, of Bloomington, died of multiple head injuries sustained in the crash Saturday morning on the 13100 block of College View Drive near Hennepin Technical College in Eden Prairie, the Hennepin County medical examiner’s office said.
Police have released few details about the single-vehicle crash, which occurred about 7:40 a.m. Eden Prairie Police, the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office Crime Lab and a crash reconstructionist from the Minnesota State Patrol, said city spokeswoman Joyce Lorenz.
Ellis was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
Ellis was recently married and was the father of three children, including a recently born baby, according to a GoFundMe page set up to help the family.
“The Ellis family is going through a terrible loss,” the fundraising page, which identified his wife as Katie, said. “They have three children and were just starting their journey together. Sadly they will now have to move forward without him.”
Ellis worked at Ames Construction, according to his Facebook page.
