Two Northeast Iowa residents have been hurt when their motorcycle collided with a deer in Chickasaw County.


According to the Iowa State Patrol, the accident happened Sunday evening (Oct. 28) at about 7pm on 110th Street, just east of Fayette Avenue, which is just west of Alta Vista.

A Harley Davidson, driven by 64 year old Jerry Dahly of Riceville, was eastbound on 110th, when a deer entered the roadway.

Dahly tried to stop, but the cycle went out of control, and both he and his passenger, 63 year old Sharon Rowe of Riceville, were ejected.

Dahly was taken by air ambulance to Mayo Hospital in Rochester; Rowe was transported to Mercy in New Hampton. There was no condition report available.
