A Texas man on a skateboard was injured early Saturday morning in Hutchinson after being hit by a car.

The State Patrol says 23-year-old Jacob Clavette of San Antonio was taken to Hutchinson Health E-R and later flown to HCMC in Minneapolis for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The incident happened at about 1:30 Saturday morning at the intersection of Main Street and 2nd Avenue North.

The car was driven by 25-year-old Ryan Oelfke of Darwin. Oelfke and his passenger were not injured.

The State Patrol says alcohol was detected in both Oelfke and Clavette, but did not indicate if it was a factor in the collision.
