A motorcyclist was hospitalized Thursday after an early morning crash in Brown County between Searles and Madelia.

Zeitz was transported to the New Ulm Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries following the crash, which happened just after 1 a.m.

A crash report says alcohol was detected in Zeitz’s system. He was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, according to the patrol report.
