Matthew Owen Lynch, age 52, died of injuries from a single-vehicle crash the afternoon of Feb. 10, according to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office.
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety said the vehicle ran off the road near I-394 and Highway 169. The report said the Jeep Grand Cherokee was traveling north on Ford Road and failed to stop for a stop sign at Wayzata Boulevard, crashing through the freeway wall and landing on eastbound I-394 traffic lanes.
A memorial for Lynch, a resident of Bryn Mawr, said he was a devoted husband of 25 years and father to three children. He graduated from Patrick Henry High School, attended the University of Minnesota, and loved crossword puzzles, golf and grilling.
