A Slayton man sustained minor injuries in a motorcycle accident Monday morning in Worthington.

The Minnesota State Patrol reports that shortly after 6am, 19 year-old Atwood Robert of Slayton was riding a 2016 Yamaha YP400 northbound on Highway 29, and was stopped at the stoplight at 50th avenue.  When the light turned green, the clutch was not operated correctly, causing the bike to flip upright and eject the driver.

Robert sustained non-life threatening injuries, but was not taken to a medical facility.
