A motorcyclist was injured in an accident on Highway 15  north of Hutchinson last week, and two women were injured Saturday in a rollover on Highway 212 west of Glencoe.
According to the Minnesota State Patrol, motorcyclist Wayne A. Smetana, 69, of St. Michael, was injured Thursday, June 9, at about 7 p.m., when his motorcycle and a car collided in the roundabout on Highway 15 near North High Drive in Hutchinson. The car was a 2012 Dodge Charger driven by Alexander D. Schmidt, 19, of Hutchinson.
Smetana was taken by ambulance to the Hutchinson hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Schmidt was not injured in the accident, nor were his three passengers, Derek A. Skelton, 15, Brandon M. Johnson, 16, and Brandon A. Lietzau, 17, all of Hutchinson.
On Saturday at 4:38 p.m., a one-vehicle rollover was reported on Highway 212 near Lace Avenue, west of Glencoe.
According to the state patrol, Deanna R. Smith, 22, of Minneapolis, was eastbound on Highway 212 in a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado, pulling a trailer, when the vehicle left the road, entered the ditch and rolled.
Smith and her passenger, Debra L. King, 49, of Minneapolis, were both taken to the Glencoe Regional Health Services Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Assisting at the scene were Allina Ambulance, Glencoe Fire Department and the Brownton Police Department.
Alcohol was not a factor in either accident, according to the state patrol.
