Craig man breaks leg in motorcycle accident

A 61-year-old Craig man was taken to the hospital early Friday morning after a deer slammed into the motorcycle he was driving.

David Hainault suffered a broken leg in the accident and was transported by ambulance to Yampa Valley Medical Center. At about 7:15 a.m., Hainault was heading east on U.S. Highway 40 near Milner when a deer ran into the right side of his Honda GoldWing motorcycle, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

The deer deflected off to the right side of the highway, and Hainault was able to come to a controlled stop. His leg injury resulted from the impact of the deer running into him. The motorcycle then fell on Hainault when he tried to get off it.
