Lake Area officials continue to urge motorists to be on the lookout for various wildlife crossing our roadways. 67-year-old Ronald Baker, of Camdenton, found that out the hard way when he was riding a motorcycle on Camden County Route-D, just south of Turkey Pen Hollow Road, and could not avoid a deer in the roadway. The accident happened early Wednesday morning. Baker suffered moderate injuries and was treated at Lake Regional.
A motorcycle accident on highway 5 sent a Camden County teen to the hospital with serious injuries. The Highway Patrol says 19-year old Michael Delmotte of Camdenton was riding his Kawasaki Ninja in a careless and imprudent manner when he rear-ended another vehicle. Delmotte was thrown off of the bike and was flown to University Hospital.
