BUFFALO, MN – A Delano man remains in critical condition from involvement in a motorcycle accident Wednesday afternoon just after 4 p.m. in Buffalo.

Walter W. Johnson, 45, of Delano, was seriously injured in the crash and was airlifted from Buffalo Hospital to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

Johnson was on a 2004 Honda Road-Street motorcycle when he rear-ended a 1994 GMC Suburban being driven by Joy Y. Goodmanson, 44, of Buffalo.

Goodmanson was stopped in the eastbound lane of Highway 55 to turn north onto Division Street. A third, unknown, vehicle between Goodmanson and Johnson passed Goodmanson on the shoulder. Johnson then rear-ended Goodmanson.

Assisting the Minnesota State Patrol at the scene of the crash included the Buffalo Police Department and the Wright County Sheriff’s Office.

As of early Friday afternoon, Johnson was at North Memorial Medical Center in critical condition. Goodmanson had no apparent injury.
