A Newton man was injured when his motorcycle struck a deer.

40-year-old Craig Nester was traveling on a rural road two miles south of Newton just after 7pm Thursday when a deer moved onto the roadway.  State police say Nester tried to miss the deer, but the cycle struck the deer, throwing Nester off the cycle.

Nester was taken to Deaconess Hospital in Evansville, Indiana where police say he was listed in critical condition.
