Cottage Grove man injured in weekend motorcycle accident

A weekend motorcycle accident just northeast of Hudson, Wis., sent a Cottage Grove man to Regions Hospital in St. Paul.

John Hiber, 42, was heading north on St. Croix County Road A just outside of Hudson at around 7:15 p.m. Saturday when the accident occurred.

The St. Croix County Sheriff's Department said Hiber was riding side-by-side with fellow motorcyclist Janet Dordal, 49, St. Paul, when the pair attempted to negotiate a curve near the intersection of St. Croix County Road U.

The two collided and then were tossed into a ditch. Emergency response personnel found the pair unconscious, according to officials.

The pair was taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul where early Monday afternoon a hospital spokesman reported that Dordal was in serious condition and that Hiber's condition was undetermined.
