Detroit Lakes woman injured in motorcycle accident

A 44-year-old rural Detroit Lakes woman was airlifted to a Fargo hospital for severe injuries as a result of a motorcycle accident Saturday.

According to the Becker County Sheriff's Office, Bonnie Kay Harsted was heading northbound on County Highway 37 when she went off the road and drifted off the curb.

Becker County Sheriff Tim Gordon said speed was not a factor in the accident that was reported at 12:10 a.m.

Harsted was transported to Sanford Health in Fargo for severe but non-life threatening injuries, Gordon added.

The White Earth Police Department responded to the accident scene, while Becker County Sheriff's deputies assisted.
