Emergency responders have taken a 55-year-old Glyndon, Minn., man to a Fargo hospital following a motorcycle accident east of Dilworth.


Patrick Fortier was headed westbound on U.S. Highway 10 at the interchange with Minnesota Highway 336 when he tried to avoid a jug of motor oil that was left on the highway, according to Minnesota State Trooper Jesse Grabow.

Fortier lost control and ran off the road, suffering cuts and scrapes to his head, Grabow said.
