CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) - Officials say a northeast Iowa man lost control of his motorcycle when it struck a deer.

The Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office says 43-year-old Jason Melver, of Waverly, was riding the motorcycle early Monday on a road near Cedar Falls when the deer entered the vehicle’s pathway.

Melver lost control of the motorcycle before it slid into the lane of an oncoming semitrailer. Melver was not on the motorcycle when it was struck by the semi.

Melver was transported to a hospital but additional information was not released. It’s also unclear what happened to the deer.
