Minnesota woman injured in motorcycle accident Sunday

A Minnesota woman was injured Sunday afternoon when she was ejected from the motorcycle she was riding on County Highway F in the town of Clifton. 

Cheryl Schistad, 54, Harris, was northbound on Hwy. F when she hit a bump in the roadway, causing her to lose control. The motorcycle then slid onto its side, ejecting her. Schistad was traveling through part of Hwy. F that is being resurfaced and the crash did happen in the construction zone, said Pierce County Sheriff's Deputy Adam Olson. The accident happened at 4:04 p.m.

Olson said speed and the construction zone appear to be factors in the crash. She was transported to Regions Hospital, where a spokesperson said Monday morning she was in good condition.

Pierce County was assisted by St. Croix County Sheriff's Department, River Falls Ambulance Service, River Falls Fire and Jerry's Towing.
