A motorcyclist was injured Saturday after he collided with a deer on Interstate 80 in Pottawattamie County.
Christian Zobel, 49, of Des Moines was traveling east on I-80 near Avoca when he collided with a deer about 6 a.m., the Iowa State Patrol said.
His Harley Davidson slid into a ditch and Zobel came to rest in the middle of the Interstate’s eastbound lanes.
Zobel was flown by helicopter to the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. — Sam Womack
