A motorcyclist was injured in a crash Saturday in Barnes County, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

The crash occurred at 11:10 a.m. when a 2013 Harley-Davidson motorcycle driven by Danny Lindseth, 40, Paige, N.D., failed to negotiate a curve while going southbound on N.D. Highway 32, about 3 miles north of Oriska, the patrol said. The patrol said Lindseth entered the east ditch where he lost control of the motorcycle and crashed.
