Two Fort White residents were seriously injured on Saturday night when the Harley Davidson motorcycle they were riding struck a deer on State Road 47.
Clifton Lloyd Crossman, 65, was driving the 2009 Harley Davidson motorcycle north on State Road 47 just after 8 p.m. when a deer ran into his path. Crossman was unable to avoid hitting the deer in time. After hitting the deer, the motorcycle came to a final stop 50 yards north of the area where the collision occurred.
Both Crossman and his passenger, Betty Jene Ward, 41, were ejected off of the motorcycle. According to Trooper R. Rodriguez of the Florida Highway Patrol, Crossman was flown by helicopter to UF Health Shands Hospital. Ward was transported by ambulance to UF Health Shands Hospital. The Florida Highway Patrol was unable to determine if helmets were in use when the accident occurred near the intersection of State Road 47 and County Road 232.
