An eastern Iowa woman has been injured in a weekend motorcycle accident.


At about 2:30pm Sunday, Linn County authorities were called to the accident in the 4500 block of Boy Scouts Road, east of Central City.

An investigation determined that 57 year old Debra Rathjens of Springville was driving her motorcycle north, when she got too close to the shoulder, which pulled her down into the ditch.

Rathjens was taken to St. Luke's hospital in Cedar Rapids, where she was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

According to the Linn County Sheriff, Rathjens was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
