Spirit Lake, IA (KICD)–A Minnesota woman was injured following an accident with a Dickinson County Deputy.

The Sheriff’s Office says Deputy Josh Roberts was westbound on Highway 9 & 71, east of Spirit Lake, just after 2:00 this (Friday) morning. 55-year-old Laverne Schweertmann of Breckenridge was driving a 1977 Harley Davidson motorcycle eastbound in the westbound lane.
