HOUSTON — A motorcycle crashed into some trees after leaving the roadway north of Houston early Monday. 

Trey Michael Norby, 26, of Houston, was riding a 2002 Suzuki GSX200 north on Minnesota Highway 76 north of Houston at about 12:49 a.m. Monday when the motorcycle left the roadway, went down a steep ditch and collided with a tree, causing the motorcycle to go on its side. The motorcycle then slid and hit a pair of trees, while Norby slid separately and hit another tree, according to a Minnesota State Patrol report.

Alcohol was involved in the crash, the state patrol reports.

Norby, who was wearing a helmet, was transported via Houston Ambulance to Gundersen Health Systems in La Crosse with non-life threatening injuries, the report states. No update on his condition was available.

The Houston County Sheriff's Office, Rushford Police Department and Houston Fire Department also responded to the scene.
