The driver, 48-year-old Jason Douglas Behlmer of Detroit Lakes, lost control of the cycle which left the roadway and came to a stop in the north ditch.

He was injured as well as the passenger, 34-year-old Tracy Ann Dallman, also of Detroit Lakes. They were taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital and later were flown by helicopter to another hospital.

The motorcycle which was driven by Behlmer was a 2015 Harley-Davidson.
