Lake View Man Injured in Motorcycle-Deer Accident

A Lake View man was injured in a motorcycle-deer accident earlier this week.

According to Sac County Sheriff Ken McClure, the accident happened early Tuesday morning about seven miles north of Sac City. 45-year-old Kelly Peterson was traveling southbound on county road M-54 around 1:20am on Tuesday, when a deer ran onto the roadway in Peterson’s path. Peterson was thrown from his 2022 Harley Davidson motorcycle.

Peterson was transported by ambulance to the Buena Vista Regional Medical Center in Storm Lake with multiple non-life threatening injuries.

The motorcycle wound up in the east ditch, and sustained an estimated five-thousand dollars in damage.
