The Harlan Police Department says the driver of a motorcycle suffered minor injuries when the cycle went out of control and crashed into a parked motorcycle, last Thursday. Officials say Douglas Nelson, of Harlan, was starting his 1976 Harley Davidson cycle, when it took off and shot across the street, before colliding with a legally parked 1953 Harley, parked in the 1000 block of 7th Street. The other cycle was registered to Keith Kaufman, of Harlan. When the cycles collided, Nelson’s leg was pinned between them. Damage from the mishap amounted to $2,250.

(Note: In their original report, the Harlan Police Dept. reversed the names of the individuals in this story. They had Kaufman as the man who started the cycle and was injured. On May 31st, officials issued a correction to their report.)
