A Cottage Grove, Minn., man was in fair condition Monday, 16 hours after he was airlifted to Regions Hospital in St. Paul with injuries after two motorcycles collided late Sunday afternoon on Hwy. 35, south of CTH E in the town of Diamond Bluff.


Dennis J. Monn, 52, was transported by helicopter while another victim, James D. Sershen, 21, of Northfield, Minn., was transported by Prescott Area Ambulance to Regions with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries.

A hospital spokeswoman said Sershen was in good condition Monday morning. The nature of his injuries wasn't disclosed.

A third man, William E. King, 46, of St. Paul, drove his motorcycle into the ditch to avoid colliding with the other two. He was not injured.

Pierce County sheriff's deputy Craig Theis said in a news release that 4:08 p.m. crash occurred after Serchen had attempted a U-turn with his Honda motorcycle when Monn's Harley Davidson machine collided with him.

Prescott firefighters and a paramedic from the River Falls Area Ambulance Service assisted at the scene.
