101514 deer on the move photo

Two people were injured Sunday when their motorcycle collided with a deer in northern Lyon County.

A Kansas Highway Patrol report says Samuel L. Raprager, 41, of Hesston was heading west on U.S. Highway 56 near Bushong when his bike encountered the deer shortly before 2 p.m. The collision sent the motorcycle sliding into a ditch.

Raprager received what the KHP calls a “suspected minor injury.” His passenger was more seriously hurt. Lorena L. Rojas, 27, of Winfield was taken to Newman Regional Health in Emporia with a suspected serious injury.

The report noted neither person was wearing a helmet.
