Cyclist injured southeast of Henning
The driver of a motorcycle was injured at 1:29 p.m. on Sept. 16 southeast of Henning, on Highway 29, in Elmo Township.
Gregory Mark Johnson, 60, of Osakis, sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
Sheriff deputies, working in conjunction with the State Highway Patrol, said Johnson was southbound on his Harley-Davidson. His cycle veered into the northbound lane of Highway 29, continuing into the east ditch.
Johnson, who was wearing a helmet, was thrown into the east ditch. The victim was transported to a area hospital by Henning Ambulance.
Scam averted in Elizabeth
A resident of Elizabeth did not take the bait of a scam artist on Sept. 16 and instead reported the incident to the county sheriff office.
The resident was informed over the phone that he was the winner of a large cash prize. No personal information was given over the phone. Scammers often tell people that in order to obtain cash awards, they need to pay some sort of fee before the award can be given.
Sheriff deputies remind county residents that if something seems too good to be true, it’s likely that the call is a potential scam.
