A husband and wife — both of whom were wearing helmets — were transported after striking a deer with their motorcycle early Saturday morning.
According to the Stanton County Sheriff's Office, just after 1:05 a.m. on Saturday morning they responded to and investigated a motorcycle/deer accident on Hwy 24 about four miles west of Stanton. The accident occurred when a westbound motorcycle driven by David Burgess, 52 struck a deer as it crossed the highway.
The collision ejected Burgess and his 39 year old passenger, Jessica Burgess onto the roadway and into the south ditch. They were both transported by ambulance to FRHS for treatment. Helmets were in use and prevented more serious injuries. The deer was killed in the accident.
Stanton Fire and Rescue also responded to the accident.
