BROOKFIELD, N.Y. (AP) — Police say a motorcyclist is dead after a deer was hit by another vehicle and sent flying into his path in central New York.

The Madison County Sheriff’s Office tells local media outlets the accident happened when the deer walked out of a cornfield and was hit in the town of Brookfield at about 5:30 a.m. Sunday.

The deer was thrown into the air and hit the biker, who died at the scene.

Authorities say the name of the dead man will be released Monday after his relatives are notified.

There was no report of injury to the other driver.

Brookfield is 20 miles south of Utica.
