A second New Ulm man was injured in a motorcycle accident in just over a week. The state patrol says a Yamaha motorcycle driven by 35-year-old Adam DeLeon of North Mankato was traveling east on Highway 68 in Blue Earth County when the motorcycle collided with an animal. De Leon was thrown from the motorcycle and the downed machine then collided with an eastbound Harley Davidson motorcycle driven by 47-year-old John Thomas Schafer of New Ulm. Both motorcyclists received treatment at a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
