The Stearns County Sheriff's Office says 22-year-old Benjamin Scegura was eastbound on River Street in the city of Holdingford around 5:30 p.m. when the crash happened.

According to the sheriff's office, Scegura told deputies he hit a puddle of water which caused him to lose control and lay the bike down on its side. Scegura was not wearing a helmet and was taken by ambulance to St. Cloud Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Authorities believe alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.
