A Richmond man was killed Thursday afternoon after being hit by a car, throwing him off his motorcycle.
52-year-old Paul Hiltner was killed at the scene of the accident that happened just before 1:30 p.m. The Waite Park police were called to the accident at the intersection of 2nd Street South and 28th Avenue South.
Police say a car driven by 31-year-old Erick Bardeaux of Sartell was travelling eastbound on 2nd Street South and drove through a stop sign 28th Avenue.
