WINDSOR (CBS) – A motorcyclist suffered serious injuries after colliding with a moose on Route 9 in Windsor on Wednesday afternoon.

Donald E. Allard Jr. was riding his 1982 Harley Davidson bike at around 4:40 p.m. when he hit the moose. The motorcycle then skidded on its side for at least 100 feet after the collision, and the 55-year-old Allard was left on the ground nearby.

Allard was transported to Berkshire Medical Center with serious injuries.

The moose, meanwhile, also suffered serious injuries and had to be euthanized by environmental officers.
