Byron Man Injured in Weekend Motorcycle Crash
Oronoco, MN (KROC-AM News) - A motorcycle crash Saturday evening in Oronoco sent a Byron man to the hospital with what were described as moderate injuries.
Olmsted County Sheriff's Deputies responded to the 800 block of Second Avenue Northwest in Oronoco around 7 PM Saturday after a Rochester woman driving the motorcycle unexpectedly entered the cul-de-sac and was not able to turn around. A spokesman says 42-year-old Krista Lane was going around 30-35 miles per hour and apparently laid the motorcycle down on the pavement when it became clear she would not be able to stop or make the tight turn.
She was not injured, but her passenger was transported to St. Mary's hospital by ambulance. He was identified as 44-year-old Shane Gullickson.
The Sheriff's Office report on the crash indicates neither Gullickson nor Lane were wearing helmets.
