A motorcyclist suffered minor injuries Thursday after his motorcycle hit a deer near Riley.

Officer Matthew Droge said Wilfred Maldonado, 57, Manhattan, had been driving his Harley Davidson in the 15000 block of Madison Road a little before 10 p.m. Thursday, when the deer appeared in the road.

Maldonado reportedly injured his leg after he laid down his motorcycle to try to avoid the animal.

Riley County EMS transported Maldonado to Mercy Regional Health Center where he was treated for his injuries.
