A 62-year-old Ardmore man was airlifted from the scene of a late afternoon deer/motorcycle crash Wednesday on U.S. Highway 77, one mile north of Ardmore.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said Robert Philips was taken to OU Medical Center with multiple injuries following the 4:36 p.m. accident. He was admitted to the metro hospital in what was described as stable condition.
The patrol said Philips was southbound on the highway when the motorcycle collided with a deer standing in the road.
Philips was wearing a helmet.
Capt. Ronnie Hampton, Commander OHP Troop F, headquartered in Ardmore, said the accident is one of the "first injury collisions" in Troop F this fall involving a deer in the roadway.
