A motorcyclist who hit a deer on Friday night on Route 65 near Mosser Road has died.

Scott Boyer, 55, of Slippery Rock Township, died Saturday morning in UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh of blunt force trauma injuries sustained in the accident.

“You have no protection whatsoever on a motorcycle,” said Cpl. Dave Lough of the Shenango Township police department.

Lough said the accident occurred shortly before 6:55 p.m. Friday, saying the motorcycle spun off the road after colliding with the deer, resulting in Boyer suffering serious facial injuries.

He said there was no passengers on the motorcycle.

Police said Boyer was taken to the Shenango Fire Station by Noga ambulance, and then flown by Stat Medevac to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital, Pittsburgh where he died.

The Shenango Township Volunteer Fire Department responded to the scene of the crash and the landing zone at the fire station.

A fireman said the motorcycle driver, traveling alone, apparently lost control of his vehicle.

The fireman said a passerby saw the accident and called 911.
