A 53-year old man was seriously injured in a motorcycle crash on County Road E, near Superior's city limits.

The Superior Fire Department was called to the scene shortly after 4 p.m. Sunday. A 53-year-old man was found badly injured in the roadway.

A deer that was breathing but near death was found in a nearby ditch, leading responders to suspect the motorcyclist struck the animal, resulting in the crash, said Battalion Chief Scott Gordon.
