(Frazee, MN) -- A West Fargo couple has been hospitalized after a motorcycle crash in Becker County Monday evening.

The Minnesota State Patrol, along with help from the Becker County Sheriff's Office, says 73-year-old Brian Irving and his wife, Beverly, were headed eastbound on Highway 87 in Evergreen Township around 6 p.m. when they struck a deer at milepost 13.

Both suffered non-life-threatening injuries, and were transported via ambulance to Essentia Health's Detroit Lakes location.

Neither of the pair were wearing a helmet when the crash occurred. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor. The crash does remain under investigation.
