A Crescent man was seriously injured during a motorcycle accident Monday afternoon, in Pottawattamie County. Pott. County Sheriff’s Department Chief Investigator, Sgt. Dwayne Richie, said 58-year old Ronnie Stuart was flown by LifeNet helicopter to Creighton Medical Center in Omaha following the crash on Mynster Springs Road, northeast of Council Bluffs.

Richie says Stuart was traveling eastbound in the 19-thousand block of Mynster Springs Road on a 2000 Confederate Hellcat motorcycle at around 1:50-p.m., when he failed to negotiate a curve in the road. The cycle went off to the right and struck the east side of the ditch and came to an abrupt stop. No charges were filed. A report on Stuart’s condition is not available.
