A Northeast Iowa man is recovering from injuries he sustained in a motorcycle accident in Winneshiek County.


The sheriff was notified at about 2:45pm Sunday (Jul 8) of a motorcycle accident on Pole Line Road near Decorah.

61 year old Lonnie Steenhard of Cresco was westbound when he entered a curve, lost control, collided with the metal guardrail, which threw Steenhard off the bike.

Steenhard sustained significant, but non-life threatening injuries. He was airlifted to Mayo Clinic in Rochester.

There was $5,000 in damages.
