Woman injured in motorcycle crash
A 54-year-old woman was injured Sunday afternoon when her motorcycle crashed in Pierce County, Pierce County Sheriff's Department reported. Cheryl Schistad, Harris, Minn., was northbound on County Road F just north of 769th Avenue in Clifton Township just after 4 p.m. That section of road is under construction, Deputy Adam Olson said, and it appeared that the motorcycle hit a bump, causing Harris to lose control. Schistad was transported to Regions Hospital in St. Paul with non-life-threatening injuries. Speed and the construction zone appear to be factors in the crash. St. Croix County Sheriff's Department, River Falls Ambulance Service, River Falls Fire Department and Jerry's Towing assisted at the scene.
