CELESTINE — A motorcycle rider complained of pain after his Harley Davidson collided with a deer Wednesday night a mile east of Celestine.
Andrew L. Stork, 21, of 1904 W. Fifth Ave., Jasper, was westbound on State Road 164 on a 2005 Harley Davidson when the 8:54 p.m. accident occurred east of County Road 820E.
A deputy said Stork unsuccessfully tried to evade a deer that ran onto the highway. The motorcycle hit the deer head-on, then went off the north side of the roadway before stopping in a ditch.
Stork, who was wearing a helmet, complained of elbow and lower arm pain but a deputy indicated he was not seriously injured.
The collision killed the buck, police said.
Damage was estimated at between $2,500 and $5,000.
The Celestine Volunteer Fire Department and Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services assisted.
