NORTH STONINGTON — A woman suffered minor injuries Sunday when Connecticut State Police said she was struck and knocked from her motorcycle by a deer while driving along Route 2.

A 2016 Harley Davidson FLHXS owned by Angela Marie Koprowski, of Spencer, Mass., was traveling west on Route 2 in the area of Rocky Hollow Road around noon on Sunday when a group of deer ran into the roadway with one of the deer running directly into the side of the motorcycle, according to an accident report.

An unidentified witness "confirmed and reported that the deer ran into the motorcycle," the police report said.

The driver, a woman, suffered minor injuries when she was thrown from the motorcycle. It was not clear in the police report whether the driver and owner were the same person.

The driver was treated at the scene by members of the North Stonington Ambulance Association and later taken to Backus Hospital in Norwich and has since been released, officials said. North Stonington firefighters also assisted in the response.
