Last Tuesday morning, just past 6:30, Mark Spies of Sartell was riding his 2008 Honda motorcycle southbound on Highway 15. He stopped at the stop sign when he was struck from behind by a 2009 Mercury Mariner driven by Nathan Luhmann, 29 of Bemidji. The impact pushed Spies’s motorcycle into the intersection with Highway 55 where it struck a 2015 Ram pickup driven by 48-year-old Jerimy Kuhns of Grove City.
Spies, 55, was taken to St. Cloud Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The vehicle drivers were both seat-belted, and neither was injured.
