DALLAS PLANTATION — A Rangeley man was injured Wednesday morning when his motorcycle collided with a deer on Dallas Hill Road, Chief Deputy Steve Lowell of the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department said.

Ronald Kozlowski, 63, was driving down Dallas Hill Road at about 11:26 a.m. when a small deer collided with his 2009 Yamaha XT 250, he said.

Due to possible internal injuries, Kozlowski was taken by a NorthStar EMS ambulance to the Lindbergh Airport in Avon to meet a LifeFlight helicopter. He was taken to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston. A nursing supervisor said Wednesday night that he was in fair condition.

Kozlowski was wearing a helmet, Lowell said.

The deer was injured and had to be killed.

Deputies Kevin Hartley and Matthew Brann were assisted at the scene by Rangeley Fire Rescue Department. Phillips Fire Department was called to set up a landing zone at the airport.

Kozlowski’s motorcycle was slightly damaged, Lowell said.
