(ABC 6 News) - The family of the man injured in a motorcycle/mini-van accident on Saturday, says it wasn't Joshua Kvam on the motorcycle, but rather his father Melvin.

This despite the fact the State Trooper report indicates it was Joshua in the accident. A person identifying himself as Joshua Kvam contacted ABC 6 News to say the motorcycle was his, but his father was riding it.

Monday afternoon authorities confirmed that it was in fact Melvin Kvam on the motorcycle.

As we've reported, a mini-van hit the rear end of the motorcycle on Highway 14, just west of Kasson on July 27th, around 2 p.m.   

The rider was transported to Saint Marys Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the mini-van was not hurt.
