DANVILLE, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a motorcycle crash involving a deer injured three people in southeast Iowa.

The Des Moines County Sheriff’s Office says 23-year-old Joe Roth was traveling by motorcycle Wednesday night near Danville when he struck a deer and was knocked off his bike.

Fifty-four-year-old Gail Schultz, in a separate vehicle, slowed her car after the crash. She was struck from behind by 19-year-old Emma Asher, whose vehicle went off the roadway and into a ditch.

All three were hospitalized. Roth, of Burlington, and Schultz, of Galesburg, sustained injuries that were not life-threatening. Asher, of Morning Sun, sustained serious injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.
