Motorcycle accident injures two

(KAKE) -

A couple on a motorcycle were hurt when they collided with a deer late Sunday afternoon on US 54 west near the town of Cheney. 

Sedgwick County dispatch reports that the accident was called in at approximately 5:25 p.m. Officers found a man and woman with injuries to the chest and legs. At least one of the motorcycle's occupants was wearing a helmet. 

US 54 west was closed for a short time as a result of the accident.

Wichita Police would like to remind riders to wear their helmets and to watch for animals. Deer are very active this time of year and when you see one, there's probably another close by.

The pair was transported to a local hospital and are expected to be okay.
