Two transported to hospital after motorcycle accident

Two people were transported to the hospital Wednesday after hitting a deer on Libbey Road, according to Battalion Chief Chris Swiger of North Whidbey Fire and Rescue.

The man and woman sustained minor injuries and the deer died at the scene, Swiger said.

The couple had been travelling toward State Highway 20 when their motorcycle struck a young deer crossing the road near West Beach Road. Their vehicle laid down but sustained minor damage, and the man and woman were both wearing helmets, Swiger said.

First responders from WhidbeyHealth and North Whidbey Fire arrived at about 11:30 a.m.

Last week, a motorcyclist on South Whidbey was seriously injured after colliding with a deer on Highway 525.

That Coupeville man was sent to Providence Hospital in Everett for treatment.
