Madison County sheriff's deputies report a fatal accident in the town of Brookfield.
Deputies say a vehicle operated by 31-year-old Phurba Tamang of Utica was traveling south on Route 8 when a deer crossed the vehicle's path. Tamang's vehicle struck the deer, and investigators believe it was sent airborne and struck a northbound motorcycle. The male driver was ejected and was pronounced dead at the scene by rescuers. There was no report on Tamang's condition.
The motorcyle driver who was killed is identified as 49-year old Cyle Chesebro of the village of West Edmeston, which is located a few miles from the crash.
