A Clarks Grove, Minnesota man was airlifted this week and taken to a local hospital after a severe motorcycle accident in Albert Lea.
According to reports, 20-year-old Dylan Hanson was traveling along County Road 46 on Wednesday, at around 1:50 p.m., when he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed into a sedan driven by Donald Bell, 70. The accident occurred close to Trails Travel Center. Bell was attempting to pull out of the center’s parking lot when he was hit by Hanson.
Although Bell was uninjured, Hanson’s injuries were so severe that he was airlifted and taken to a local emergency room. Per Sgt. Tim Freden of the Minnesota State Patrol, warm weather always brings about additional motorcycle accidents. He warns riders to take precautions:
“I like the idea that motorcycles are always vigilant, but we need to get people to see the motorcycles on the highways, and when you’re going to cross a road or leave a stop sign, check and double check to make sure there’s no motorcycles coming,” said Freden.
Hanson remains at Rochester’s St. Mary’s Hospital where he is being treated for his injuries. As of now, there is no indication of alcohol and/or drugs being involved in the accident, but police continue to investigate.
