An Ardmore man who struck a deer in the roadway while driving a motorcycle early Thursday morning was transported by Air Evac, according to an Oklahoma Highway Patrol report.
Robert M. Kohut, 59, was admitted to Plano Medical Center in Plano, Texas in critical condition with head, trunk internal, trunk external, arm and leg injuries. The collision occurred about 12:27 a.m. Thursday on Happy Trails Road, about a fourth of a mile south of State Highway 53 in Springer, the report says.
Kohut was southbound on a 1999 Harley Davidson when he topped a hill crest and struck the deer, laying the vehicle down on its left side. The report says Kohut was thrown an undetermined distance from the vehicle’s point of rest.
OHP received assistance from Springer Fire Department and Southern Oklahoma Ambulance Service.
